Hundreds got an early start to their Labor Day Holiday by coming together after the tragic death of the Australian baseball player, Christopher Lane, in Duncan last month.

A 5k and fun run at Halliburton Park celebrated the life of Lane and what would have been his 23rd birthday.

More than 400 folks came from near and far to support Lane, his family, and the tight knit community of Duncan. 

All the money raised from the run will go towards the Christopher Lane Memorial Scholarship Fund, coordinators say they plan to have the event annual.
