ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Relay for Life kicked off Monday night at Firehouse Subs and TCBY.

Each business donated a portion of Monday night's proceeds to the cancer fundraiser.

Organizers say every penny counts when it comes to helping those battling cancer.

"It's about having more survivors, it's about having more birthdays, it's about our family and friends and everybody just joining in," said Relay for Life Chairperson Kathy Culbreth.

Tuesday night, Loco's will donate part of its proceeds to Relay for Life. Papa John's will join in Wednesday.
