"When your diagnosed with breast cancer you need a team approach in order to be able to succeed the best," said Spurlin.
Spurlin organized the Pink Cup Challenge. She herself is a breast cancer survivor and also used her athleticism to power through it.
"When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer, the way I was able to grasp the whole the whole concept was to, I got to build this unbeatable team so that I can beat this," said Spurlin.
Spurlin's team included Debra Prince, who is also a survivor. Both helped each other get through the difficult challenge.
"I can never repay her for being there for me," said Prince.
When Spurlin was diagnosed with breast cancer, they started off thinking of ways they could raise money for Tift Regional's Breast Center.
They ended up with with more people than they expected at the event, making eight teams in all. The number eight alone means something to Spurlin.
"I was shooting for eight teams because one in every eight women, woman have breast cancer," said Spurlin.
The challenge raised over $10,000 for Tift Regional.
