Light The Night A Success

September 21, 2007

Albany - - Hundreds of people put on their walking shoes at Chehaw park Friday to support victims of cancer.

Red balloons colored the park for the Light the Night Walk. It's an annual fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

A group of pageant winners raised $900 as they competed for the title of Miss Light the Night of Albany.  

"Coming from my background, I've been homeless before so I know that it is very important to help someone in need. Anytime I can give my heart out to someone else, it's just great," says Courtney Farrow.

Many cancer survivors were also on hand to participate. The event culminated with a walk around the park.
