Saturday morning, money was raised for to help with local student's school supplies in a colorful way. Over one hundred runners got blues, greens, reds and everything in between thrown at them, all to help Lawton elementary school students get supplies needed for the upcoming school year.

Josie Roberts helped put together the event, and says the group raised money through the entry fees, and hope to give 1,000 students the supplies they need to start the school year.

This is the first time the event has been held at the Armed Services YMCA near Elmer Thomas Park.
