LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Ambucs raised thousands of dollars on Monday at their 62nd annual Pancakes days in Lawton for their biggest fundraiser of the year. 

The money goes to building wheelchair ramps for disabled people who can't afford them. The group also works with therapists to get Amtrykes for adults and children that can cost anywhere from $500 to $1,500.

They estimate around 5,000 people came out which puts them on track to raise around $40,000 like they have in years past.
