BEAUREGARD, AL (WTVM) - Several groups are gearing up for the quickly approaching "Relay for Life" events around the area, and one team found a creative way to raise money.

Bradley Hooks and his friends started the first soon-to-be annual frisbee golf tournament. He named the event the "Carly Classic" in honor of a young cancer survivor who attends Ogletree Elementary in Auburn, the school Hooks works at as a counselor.

"I've always loved frisbee golf and I put in a course at my home and just decided its fun and folks could come out and have fun and raise some money," Hooks told News Leader Nine. "I hope everyone has a great time and gets to meet Carly and understand how special she is and everybody is aware of relay for Life and what the American Cancer Society does."

And Carly Parker certainly enjoyed the beautiful outdoors on Saturday, "It's really nice that everybody's coming to support me and help raise funds for the American Cancer Society."

All the proceeds from the day's event will go to benefit the Lee County "Relay for Life" on May 8th and 9th.
