Enid News and Eagle

ENID, Okla. — American Olympian Lopez Lomong will be speaker at Wymer Brownlee’s community luncheon Sept. 13.

Lomong has a personal best of 3:51.21 in the mile and also is one of the Sudanese Lost Boys who became an American citizen.

“His book, ‘Running for My Life,’ tells an inspirational story. I was so moved by his faith and optimism that I wanted to hear his story in person — and share that with others,” said Kyle Brownlee, CEO and wealth adviser at Wymer Brownlee. “We are excited to be able to help bring Lopez to our community.”

Lomong is a professional runner, sponsored by Nike, and was chosen by Team USA to carry the flag in the opening ceremony at the 2008 Summer Olympics. He also is a philanthropist and has a foundation to help people in his home country, Sudan.

The community luncheon will be noon Sept. 13 at the Northern Oklahoma College Enid Gantz Center. Tickets are available at Wymer Brownlee, 201 N. Grand, and at Wheat Capitol Running Co. in downtown Enid. They are $30 and include lunch. Lomong also will speak to students at Enid High School

Wymer Brownlee provides financial services, tax and accounting, and business consulting. The company has five offices in Oklahoma and recently moved into new offices at One Grand Center.
