Relay for Life teams are trying to raise money for cancer research any way they can.

Some teams are turning to local businesses for help.

Carter's Fried Chicken in Lee County set aside 10-percent of dinner sales Tuesday night for the American Cancer Society's Relay efforts.

They're also selling paper cupcakes and taking donations to help the cause.

"The team has picked up a couple of times, first time they picked up there was $87 in the change jar so people have been donating quite well," said Sam Atkinson, Carter's Fried Chicken Owner.

This is the second year Carter's has helped with the Relay. The all-night fundraising walk takes place April 15th at Darton College.
