RiverFront Run approaching soon

August 10, 2006

Albany -- Exercise is a way to fight cancer and raise money all at the same time.   

The 5-K RiverFront Run  is October 21st in Downtown Albany.  Last year, more than 600 people participated in the race that raised more than $30,000. 

Organizers hope for an even better turnout this year.  All the money raised will benefit the Southwest Georgia Cancer Coalition.  

"It makes me feel good," said Oncologist Dr. Jose Tongol. "I think that why I run marathons.  I show them how to do a healthy living that way they can implement them in their livelihood to prevent more cancer and diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and all those things."  

Later that same afternoon, a concert will be held in Downtown Albany featuring The Drifters.   Partial proceeds will also benefit the Cancer Coalition.
