Albany - A one mile walk and fundraiser will raise money for the James H. Gray, Sr. Senior Citizens Center. City Commissioner Dorothy Hubbard says it takes about $75,000 to run the center each year, and that's without any extra programming.

She said Mt. Olive Community Outreach, only received $40,000 from the city and county to help run the center, but now they need your help. A walk will be held next month along the city's walking trail. People are asked to $25 to participate, with teams donating $250.

Commissioner Hubbard said, "It's going to be a lot of fun for people who love to exercise to benefit the James Gray Senior Center."

The walk is December 1st at 8 AM. Registration begins at 7AM at the Veterans Amphitheater.
