AMARILLO -- The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Centers Laura W. Bush Institute for Womens Health (LWBIWH) recently became aware of a group calling itself the Color Bomb Run. 

The group claims to be hosting a 5K race on Saturday at 1400 Wallace Blvd. in Amarillo with proceeds benefiting the LWBIWH. 
However, the LWBIWH has no association with the Color Bomb Run.

If you have visited a website, purchased tickets or made online contributions via a website you believe is fraudulent, you are encouraged to report the incident to law enforcement. 

The LWBIWH is officially collaborating with The Color Run TM to host an event on June 7 in Amarillo, which will benefit the institute.
