7th annual Cops and Kids Poker Run

LAWTON, Okla._About 70 people hit the road for a good cause Saturday.

The 7th annual Cops and Kids Poker Run Saturday at Elmer Thomas Park revved up just after 9:00 a.m. Saturday. The trip is more than 100 miles long and goes through Duncan, Elgin, Medicine Park and Cache before returning to Lawton. All of the money raised goes toward the Cops and Kids Picnic event in September, which Officer Timothy Jenkins says helps enhance the bond between the police and the community.

"It’s very important for us because it helps us reconnect with the kids and show that we do care for the community and the children in it. So, it's very important for us," Jenkins said.

About $5,000 worth of prizes were donated to this event, including a biometric gun case, a Harley Davidson leather jacket and car washes. Along with the prizes, the water bottles, ice and food were all donated as well.
