Boots and Bling donates $10K raised during color run to the American Cancer Society

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- Comanche County Boots and Bling donated $10,000 to help fight cancer today. They raised the money by hosting a 5k color run and One Mile Fun Run in Medicine Park earlier this year. More than 200 runners showed up to support the American Cancer Society and the OK Kids Korral.

The American Cancer Society uses the money on research, education and patient services.

Amber McNeil, a volunteer for the program, says cancer can affect everyone.

“I don’t think there is anyone on planet earth who hasn’t been touched by cancer, whether you are a survivor or have a loved one who has battled the disease, we all know someone who has battled cancer or has had to face the c word. We are so grateful to the runners and sponsors of this event who allow us to be able to support cancer fighters.”

If you are interested in helping fight cancer, Boots and Bling is always looking for more volunteers.
