One Mary Dunson of Warrenton is sponsoring a walkathon to benefit St. Jude Children Research Hospital. It is scheduled for May 18.

Registration will take place that day, at 6:30 a.m., at the Warren County Armory Civic Center, 501 U.S. 158 Bus. East, Warrenton.

The walkathon itself will commence, at 7 a.m., at the armory. Participants will proceed one Macon Street toward Warrenton. At North Main Street, they will turn right, then later turn left onto Ridgeway Street. The walk will conclude upon arrival at Warren Hill Nursing Center. Participants will receive a police escort for their return to the armory.

Refreshments will be served at Lee Roy West Hardware as participants pass the store during the course of the walk.

Organizers are requesting donations, and volunteers to provide transportation for walkers straying from the group and for maintaining water stations along the route.

Call Dunson at (252) 257-3206 or (252) 213-8884 for more information about registration.
