Date:5/2/2008

ATLANTA, May 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Now in its 11th year and having raised more than $1 million to date for cancer research, Georgia Power's Run for the Reason relay team readies for its annual trek across the state to benefit and support the American Cancer Society. This year's relay will be dedicated to the late Robert W. Scherer, former Georgia Power president and CEO who passed away from cancer earlier this year.

The 19-member relay team will participate in a 414-mile run which begins Saturday, May 3 on St. Simons Island and ends Monday, May 5 at Georgia Power's Plant Wansley near Carrolton just east of the Alabama State line. All proceeds raised from the event will be donated to the American Cancer Society for cancer research, awareness and prevention programs.

"We have been participating in this relay since 1998. It's very gratifying to see the generosity of our fellow employees, friends and corporate sponsors who each year open their hearts and wallets for this worthwhile cause," said Chris D'Andrea, Georgia Power Run for the Reason chairman. "The fight is far from over and the monies raised this year will be invaluable to the continued research for a cure."

Runners will be divided into three teams with six runners each, running in relay fashion. Each participant is expected to run five 40-minute legs or 22.5 miles for an approximate total of 414 miles over three days. The runners will be supported by other employees who will follow the teams in recreational vehicles.

The relay team will pass through Waycross, Tifton, Vienna, Warner Robins, Griffin, Fayetteville, Atlanta, Austell and Douglasville before passing the baton to Alabama Power runners in Carrolton.

Hundreds of Georgia Power employees will be on-hand Monday, May 5 to cheer on the relay team as they pass by Geo
