ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Cycle enthusiasts raised funds towards the fight against cancer.  

The Cancer Coalition of South Georgia held its third annual Ride for Hope at Tony's Gym. 75 people participated in an aerobics or cycling class instructed by professional cyclists Josh Taylor. Organizers say the riders participated to honor and remember a loved one affected by cancer.

"Really to the individuals that have raised these funds and part of what they know with raising these funds is that 100% of all of the donations do stay here in our area, and they're used for the Cancer Coalition's programs and services," said Diane Fletcher with the Cancer Coalition of South Georgia.    

The Cancer Coalition of South Georgia raised more than $8,000 at the event.
