Some young athletes partner with restaurants to raise money to find a cure for cancer.

The Lee County High Boys Varsity Soccer team hosted Restaurant Percentage Night tonight at Firehouse Subs and TCBY. 10% of their proceeds will go to Relay for Life.

"The funds that we raise for Relay for Life go to the research that the American Cancer Society does to hopefully find a cure for cancer,” said Elyse Atha, Community Manager for Relay for Life. “All of the funds that we raise also help with the free programs and services that we offer cancer patients here in our community."

Relay For Life is April 24th at Darton State College from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
