Make plans to put on your walking shoes on Sunday, May 1, to help raise money for MEOC’s Emergency Fuel Fund for the Elderly. The 46th Annual Walkathon will begin at 2 p.m. at Big Stone Gap’s Bullitt Park and proceed along the Greenbelt Trail. Registration will start at 1 p.m. The rain date is May 15. The Walkathon is returning to its traditional spring date after the 2021 event was held in late August. The fundraising goal is $165,000, and the community’s support is needed to reach it.
