COOK CO., GA (WALB) -

The community enjoyed live music, a car show, and even professional wrestling all while supporting a cancer fight.

The "Zackamania" event at Cook County Middle School was held Saturday for Zack Johnson---a 16 year old fighting stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma. 

The event started with a car show at 4. Then, live music opened up for the wrestling event at 7:30. 

Organizers said it's all about fighting for Zack. 

"This community is one of the best in Georgia if not the south if not the world. We all come together for our own. whether it's a kid, an adult, we all look out for each other. We all feel like uncles to Zack because Larry and Shonna, his parents, have been bringing him to wrestling shows for years," said organizer Brooks Robinson. 

A large crowd showed up for the event. All of the money raised went to the Johnson family.
