Care2Cure Car Show for Huntington's Disease

Care2Cure Car Show for Huntington's Disease

Lawton, OK (KSWO)-  It was the 8th annual Care2Cure Car Show at the Comanche County Fairgrounds Saturday.

This car show is done every year to help raise money for Huntington's Disease support groups while also bringing awareness. You could find different cars, trucks, motorcycles, and low rider bicycles displayed. There was a kids coloring corner and gaming area. People also had the opportunity to participate in a burn out and limbo contest and get dirty in the mud pit. The Sweet Temptations Car Club has helped put this car show together for the past five years along with a Huntington's Disease support group. A member from The Sweet Temptations Car Club, Richard Small said they look forward to this car show every year.

"We put our hearts and soul into this," said Small. "This is the one show that we can actually say this is our show. Our show to help out with Huntington's, this is what we do, this is the best thing we can do, and as long as they allow us to do it, we're going to keep doing it."

Huntington's Disease can be described as having A-L-S, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease simultaneously. Lori Liptak is in the early stages of Huntington's disease and said being able to bring awareness to people is a great feeling.

"It means the world to be able to come out and talk to everyone and teach you about Huntington's, and what I feel like, and how I'm a normal person even if I do laugh goofy, or walk into a wall sometimes, or have a twitch that is different than others," said Liptak.

She also said they host a Huntington's support group every first Tuesday of the month starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Westminister Presbyterian Church in Lawton.
