LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - The 11th annual Spirit of Survival in Lawton on Sunday kicked off early in the morning, but later in the afternoon, it had a little something for everyone.

Batman, Captain America and Superman came out to show their support for children in the Super Kids Marathon for Spirit of Survival. The run gave kids 12 and under the opportunity to run for someone battling cancer, or just run for fun in superhero costumes. Some kids ran the marathon with their parents, while others were trying beat a personal goal of running a mile under 6 minutes.

Taylor Certain says she ran the marathon for aunt Madie and Ty Williams. She says it felt good crossing the finish line and running in their honor.

"I was very excited and happy that I did something good for people," said Certain.

At the end of the finish line each kid and their parents received a medal.

There was also a kids zone for kids that had food, bounce houses and games.
