Georgia Power workers run across the state

Posted: Updated:
TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

Runners are supporting the American Cancer Society by running all the way across Georgia.

A group of Georgia Power employees started their journey on St. Simons Island on April 18th. They will wrap up the 400 mile run at Plant Wansley in Heard County near the Alabama line on April 27th.

We caught up with them in Tifton Friday night. Run coordinator Jimmy Zerkus said, "It's a great feeling to see a small group of people, 30 to 45 people can actually make a difference. This year, we will have cumulatively raised more than $1.5 million for the American Cancer Society."

Georgia Power's annual Run for the Reason began 16 years ago.
