Become a Sponsor Today!

The Spirit of Survival has become one of the largest tourism attractions in Lawton and Oklahoma, drawing visitors to our community and providing support and assistance to the patients of Southwest Oklahoma. Last year’s event in Lawton was once again a great success with over 3,000 participants from 20 states.

The SOS Bike 100 will open what many are saying is the finest athletic weekend in Southwest Oklahoma. Roughly 200 participants geared up to take part in last year’s inaugural tours. On Sunday, put up your bike, change the shoes, and run/walk in any of the SOS running events – half marathon, quarter marathon, 5K, Kid’s Run, or Spirit Walk.

Most importantly, the SOS Marathon supports those with cancer and their families in four cancer center locations throughout Southwest Oklahoma in Lawton, Altus, Duncan, and Chickasha.

Race Facts:

4,500+ Expected Runners and Bikers | 2,000 Expected Spectators | 500+ Volunteers

Benefits of Sponsorship

The Spirit of Survival is truly a labor of love to help prevent and cure cancer! Since 2010, all proceeds from the SOS have been used to fund Clinical Trials being conducted at the Cancer Centers of Southwest Oklahoma in Lawton, Altus and Duncan. In six years, the SOS has raised nearly $600,000 for cancer care in SW OK. We consider those who support our cause SUPERHEROES IN THE BATTLE AGAINST CANCER because they are helping us to find a cure and provide hope for promising new treatments.

Projections

Our extensive SOS 12-week training program with weekly training walks/runs under the direction of local training experts drew over 500 participants in 2015 and should again increase the participation of local walkers and runners.
