Saturday nearly twelve hundred men, women and children invaded the Cameron University campus and were doused in an array of neon colors.
It was the first ever Technicolor Run put on by the Fit Kids Coalition. The run will help benefit the Comanche County Memorial children's ward and seemed to be a big hit.
"The benefit is two fold. You know one is getting our community moving I mean, I would say most people think oh its a chilly morning, I'm going to stay inside and watch cartoons but look at our community out and moving and kids getting out. The second fold is helping the NICU unit and Starlight fund. It's just a great cause and we're just so happy to give back to the community that's given so much to us over the past several years," said Zeak Naifeh, Cameron University Director of Campus Life.
Comanche County Memorial Hospital partnered with Cameron University and was able to keep costs low to maximize the amount of money raised. The final totals haven't come in but they are expected to total an upwards of ten thousand dollars.
