Tifton-Tift County Relay for Life teams battled cold, rainy weather Friday and Saturday, but they still raised more than $284,000. Organizers say that's more than any other South Georgia Relay.

"I have family members that currently have cancer and those who have lot their fight to cancer, and it means a lot that I can give back the community,and give back and show support to my family and show that I'm out there making a difference for them," says Relay chairperson Erika Smith.

You can still give to Relay for Life by dropping off donations at First Community Bank in Tifton. The luminary service has been re-scheduled for May 3rd at the ABAC track. It will begin at 8:30 PM.
