Hundreds gathered Friday night at Carson-Newman, taking strides to fight cancer and support the fight of the school's football coach.
Twenty-two teams joined together to walk all evening and into the morning to raise awareness for cancer.
More than 70 suriviors attended the event including Carson-Newman head football coach Ken Sparks, who is fighting a battle with prostate cancer.
Organizers say since cancer never sleeps, for one night a year, neither do volunteers, survivors and fundraisers.
"Cancer doesn't have a preference unforunately, and it can affect anybody, so we are just here to help everyone that has been affected," said Beverly Holland, community representative for the American Cancer Society.
The group hopes to raise more than $67,000 during the walk.
