LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Volunteers with the Comanche County Boots & Bling 5k Color Run have presented a $10,000 check to the American Cancer Society.

The money was raised during the annual 5K Color Run and One Mile Fun Run in Medicine Park this July.

Gilmer Capps is Chairman of the Volunteer Leadership Council for The American Cancer Society.

He says the run offers a fun way to give back.

“The American Cancer Society of Comanche County is very pleased to receive this awards from Boots & Bling. Boots & Bling has always been a great sponsor of our services and giving back to Comanche County,” said Capps.
