Lacing Up For a Cause

Runners hit the pavement this morning raising money for autism research.

Runner Lynn Pulliam says, "April is Autism Awareness month and we have a autism network here in the Texas Panhandle. The Northwest Texas Autism Network and the proceeds raised from the registration from this race go to benefit that network."

Organizers say high schools across the city were involved with the program as a way to educate younger generations about the disease.
