Rachel's Challenge comes to Albany


People linked together Thursday night in Albany, promising to do good deeds to make the community better.

The Dougherty County School System and Phoebe Putney Hospital are leading Rachel's Challenge.

The national program is in remembrance of Rachel Scott, the first victim killed in the Columbine High School massacre.

As part of the program, people pledge to do random acts of kindness on paper.

To raise awareness of the pledges, those pieces of paper were linked in a chain that stretched all the way around Hugh Mills Stadium's field.

Angie Barber, Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital says, "We invite our community to come together to begin building the chain of compassion and passion all throughout our city, so we can share an act of kindness."

The group hopes to build a chain that would be long enough to go all the way around the Albany city limits.

Look out for more Rachel's Challenge events coming up.
