The Optimist Club of Coronado, California will host the 42nd Annual Optimist Sports Fiesta this weekend, July 27-28, 2013. The event includes a 10k run and one-mile ocean swim on Saturday and a triathlon on Sunday for athletes ages 12 and up.

Adding to the fun and as a way to involve the whole family, other activities have been added this year. They include golf, diving and sand castle construction. July 20 - 28, Optimist Club members will be at holes 3 and 11 at the Coronado Municipal Golf Course to award a new quality golf ball to golfers who make a required good shot. The diving competition will take place on July 28 the community center pool and is open to all age groups. The sand castle instruction, construction and demonstration takes place at Coronado's North Beach on Sunday. Teams of five are invited to build.

All activities except golf have an entry fee attached to them. That tells me that the Optimist Sports Fiesta is a both a fundraiser and a fun raiser. Serving as a great way to help kids be active outdoors, it also helps fund the many youth-serving activities of the Optimist Club year-round. With 110 members, the Optimist Club of Coronado is a patron of its community. Click here to see just some of their beneficiaries.
