Albany - - Many schools have strict dress codes, but one Albany school relaxed their policy so students could help others.

It was dress down day at Monroe High School. Students could even wear hats and sunglasses to class.

The catch is... they had to pay a dollar to do it. The money collected will help cancer patients.  

"I know if I had Leukemia, I'd want someone to support me too because I know I would support them in their situation," says student Natasha Wilcox.

Many Albany Schools have been raising money to support Friday's Light the Night Cancer Benefit.
