The Lawton Rotary track meet goes on ,rain or shine, every year and Saturday took place for the 94th year.
Thousands of elementary students from Lawton Public Schools flocked to the Lawton High School track Saturday morning for a day of competition and fun.
Superintendent Tom Deighan kicked off the celebration.
This year the rotary club partnered with the Fit Kids Coalition and hosted a health expo. Together they hoped to encourage today's youth to live a healthy lifestyle.
"Our motto is find a need in the community and fulfill it. And one of the things we discovered was you know when it comes to Oklahoma's report card for physical fitness and obesity we're not doing so well. So we wanted to make sure that we are doing something about that," Greater Lawton Rotary Club President, Grady Morgan.
The track meet is the longest running project of any rotary club world wide.
Proceeds from Saturday's event will benefit various public school projects for literacy and physical education.
