The Fort Bend Optimist Club Sugar Land held its 33rd Annual Fun Run / Walk on November 1, 2015. Over $22,000 was raised in Sponsor support and Runner / Walker Registrations. Over $8,000 in merchandise and services were donated by our Sponsors and Supporters and were given away in a drawing and Silent Auction at the end of the race.
The proceeds go to fund various youth related projects in Fort Bend County. The largest project is the College Scholarship Program in which we give to a graduating senior in each of the High Schools $1,000 payable to the University/College they are planning on attending.
One Hundred Fifty (150) registered for the event this year.

The Optimists award a scholarship to every area high school in FBISD. In addition, FBOC has a Student Appreciation banquet, oratorical and essay contests, sponsors a Boy Scout troop, and much more. The Optimists have enjoyed the support of local merchants, professionals and citizens in our community.
