ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of people in Albany are putting on their walking shoes to raise money to fight cancer.

Relaywood, the theme of this years Relay for Life event in Albany, began popping up along Darton College's walking track Friday morning.

Thirty-five teams will each have a team member on the track at all times during the 12 hour event, that starts at seven Friday night. Organizers say every dollar helps.

"The dollar that we get from you for every raffle ticket, it could be your dollar that finds a cure," said Colony Bank Team Leader Rhonda Eigenberg. "Every dollar helps, you know you don't have to give thousands of dollars to it, every dollars adds up to thousands of dollars."

Every participant will get a T-shirt and you don't have to be on a team to turn out for the event that runs though Saturday morning at 7:00. So far, Albany's event is expected to bring in $55,000 for cancer research.
