An Albany cheerleading team donated money to help South Georgia cancer patients.
On Tuesday, the Albany Cheer Explosion donated a 500 dollar check to the Cancer Coalition of South Georgia.
They raised the money through their Pretty in Pink Extravaganza in October.
Their cheerleading coach said that it's important for them to give back to the community.
"So for us to donate some money to help someone out, for them to get treatment or anything that can help out that's what the cause of that was," said Ashley Chunn the senior cheer coach.
"It shows that they believe in us and our mission which is basically to prevent cancer and increase survival amongst South Georgians," explained Lead Research Specialist Tarccara Hodge.
