Southwest Georgia group fights Cystic Fibrosis

Albany- A local group is taking big strides in the effort to fight a deadly disease. Over a hundred pairs of legs made their way around the Parks at Chehaw in an effort to raise money to fight Cystic Fibrosis.

Walkers enjoyed the scenery along the circle and in the zoo. For walk coordinator, Deeanna May, the fight against this disease hits close to home.

"My middle son has Cystic Fibrosis, so it's a real personal walk for us. A lot of families came out today and they're making C.F. stand for cure found," said May.

Saturday's walk raised over $18,400. For more information about cystic fibrosis you can check www.cff.org .
