Tifton-- The American Cancer Society of Tift County kicked off its annual Relay for Life fundraiser today. This year's goal is $350,000.

Gospel Artist and Author Delores Burgess of Stone Mountain helped get the project started. Burgess is a cancer survivor and says the message sent by the relay is important.

"We can support so many patients and we can do the research to erradicate cancer, that's the biggest thing, we want to get rid of this disease and of course we need funding to do that"said Delores Bridges Guest Speaker and Cancer survivor.

 The 2007 Relay For Life in Tift County is Friday April 27th and Saturday April 28th at Friendly City Park/EB Hamilton Complex in Tifton.
