ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Albany's new Willson Hospice House accepted a major donation Tuesday from a long-time supporter.

The donation comes from the proceeds of this years Snickers Marathon Energy Bar Marathon and Half Marathon.

Patty Woodall with the Willson Hospice House said, "It will help patients. It will help their families, and we tried to create an environment here that was very special for families and patients. And, this is a tremendous help for that." @

Over the past four years, the Snickers Marathon has donated nearly $75,000 towards to the Willson Hospice House, which is slated to open for patients by the end of June.
