Teams will converge on Darton College to raise money to cure cancer in the Relay for Life Friday night.

One team is hoping to raise more than anyone else in the state and send Ward Wright, a young cancer survivor, to Disney World. 

Team Flock of Gulls is trying to win the Relay for Life Disney Challenge. They chose Doug Crowdis from their team to accept all the donations.

In the last few days they've raised two-thousand dollars, but worry it will take more to beat out other teams across the state.  

"Please, please please, click on our link, donate, we only have a couple of days left, we need the community's support and all of the goes to this wonderful cause," said Ella Campbell.

All the donations must be made online. Ward Wright's family recently spoke at a cancer event and touched the team, prompting them to try and win him the $500 gift certificate to Disney.
