On Saturday, Oct. 29, Macklin Baptist Church will hold a Relay For Life WalkAThon at 8 a.m., with all proceeds going towards cancer research for the American Cancer Society. The WalkAThon will also offer concessions to raise money on top of the money raised by the walkers.

Melinda Wooden remembered participating in the local WalkAThon’s for 15 years as part of the Macklin Baptist Church team but when the walks paused due to the pandemic and haven’t returned since, Wooden decided to take the steps to ensure that the WalkAThon not stop in Jackson County.
