ALBANY, GA (WALB) -The Dougherty Medical Society makes a large donation to promote healthy living in South Georgia.

Society President Dr. Anita Bell today presented a $10,000 check to South Georgia Rails to Trails President Greg McCormack.

The money was raised from the 2008 Riverfront Run October 4th in Downtown Albany.

The medical society believes Rails to Trails would promote physical fitness and fight disease

Dr. Anita Bell, the President of the Dougherty County Medical Society said "To have a place where families or individuals can go and ride bicycles and walk. That's outside. Encouraging fitness is very important."

McCormack said South Georgia Rails to Trails has raised close to $50,000 this year.

He hopes construction can begin on the Albany to Dawson project in 2010.
