Dancers prepare for a competition for a cause


We got a sneak peak Monday night of a dance couple preparing to raise money for a good cause.

The pair showed us the routine they'll perform this weekend at the University of Georgia Conference Center in Tifton as a part of the Dancing stars of South Georgia competition. It will raise money for the Alzheimer Association.

They say it's important to help find a cure for this disease. Dancer Ashley Helton said, "It's heart breaking to watch someone go through that, so having the opportunity to be able to raise some money to help prevent people in the future to having to go through that suffering is worth every painful hour of rehearsal."

The competition starts at 6:30 Saturday. Nine couples will take part.
