(Newser) – As we write this, Cliff Satterwhite is in the home stretch of an epic karaoke marathon: He's singing Garth Brooks' "Friends in Low Places" for 36 hours straight. Why? The Seattle-area karaoke host is performing the feat as part of the breast cancer awareness fundraiser he's hosting at a bar in Federal Way, Wash., KOMO News reports. Satterwhite's sister is a breast cancer survivor, and he's aiming to raise $10,000 for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, a branch of the American Cancer Society. His effort is part of the "Real Men Wear Pink" campaign, and October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Satterwhite started singing at Stars Bar and Grill at midnight Tuesday, and he'll wrap things up with a celebratory breakfast at noon Wednesday. This is the fourth year he's hosted the fundraiser, and he says he's learned a lot about how to be successful. "My attempt will feature one singer, one song, no sleep breaks, and only a [2- to 5-minute] break between songs for water, food, and bathroom, that's really what sets it apart," he tells Q13 FOX News. "The last three years have taught me so much in terms of preparation, pace, and when and what to eat. I've learned those are all key factors in the success of this event." Those who want to donate but can't make it to the bar to sing along can do so via his fundraising page. (Read more uplifting news stories.)
