Albany -- Some south Georgians are up late Friday night, hoping a good walk can help fight cancer. Thirteen teams are walking in the tenth annual Terrell County Relay for Life tonight at the 4-H pavillion.

The walkers will take laps as they raise money for cancer research and treatment programs. Some walkers say the disease really hits home, that's why it's important to raise money and awareness.

"We had our first relay in Terrell County and my dad participated in that even as a survivor, and that was the only relay he was able to participate in because he passed away later that year. I just don't want other people to go through what I went through," said Relay for Life Chair Darlene Paul.  

The goal is to raise 50-thousand dollars. Some of the money wil go toward cancer research, education, and prevention right in Terrell County.
