ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

There's still time for you to join Relay for Life to help South Georgia cancer patients.

The 22nd annual walk will kick off Friday at 6:00 p.m. at Darton State College with an opening ceremony, survivors walk, and a luminary ceremony.

At least 32 teams have signed up so far raising more than $80,000 for the American Cancer Society.
The event hits close to home for organizer Elizabeth Deming whose father died from cancer and whose husband is currently battling cancer.

"This is a very uplifting, joyous, cheerful event where the community comes together and celebrates life and works hard to find a cure for cancer,” said Elizabeth Deming, Event Lead.

The event will run until 1:00 a.m.
