A crowd of nearly 6,000 people gathered in downtown Beaumont, Saturday, for the annual Gift of Life Color Run. The event raises money for cancer screenings and research.

The event drew young and old from around the Southeast Texas community, and even the Lamar football team got in on the act during their bye week.

Gift of Life offers free screenings for breast and prostate cancer. Through these efforts, the organization helps fight cancer through education, detection, access to treatment and follow up support.
