Run for Your Lungs hits this weekend

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Fifth Annual Run for Your Lungs will be held Saturday at Lake Blackshear.

If you want to like to help lung cancer victims, but would rather eat than run, you can do that at Austin's Thursday. 

The restaurant will donate ten percent of their food checks tomorrow to the Run for Your Lungs.  It's a non-profit started by Shelia Knight, donating funds to  lung cancer patients.

"Both of my parents died of lung cancer.  When my Mom died in 2009, I just wanted to do something in memory of her.  That was good.  And really been great therapy.  So in 2011 Run for Your Lungs was born," said Shelia Knight, Run For Your Lungs Organizer.   

The Run will be Saturday morning at 9:30 at Lake Blackshear's Resort, near the Cypress Grill. 

Thursday,  ten percent of your food order at Austin's will be donated to the non profit, that helps South Georgia lung cancer victims.
