Walk or run for a good cause to support Grossmont College’s Office Professional Training program, which has trained more than 2,200 people in its 26-year history.

The 5K Walk-a-Thon and Craft Fair will be held from 9 a.m. to noon April 13 on the Grossmont College campus. Registration for the Walk-a-Thon begins at 8:30 a.m. in parking lot 7. Each participant will be entered into a drawing for fabulous prizes. 

Cost for registering the day of the event is $25 for adults and $3 for children. If you pre-pay, the cost is $20 for adults and $3 for children. Contact Mary Leslie at (619) 644-7533 or for more information. 

The Craft Fair will feature a variety of vendors, including Scentsy, Cookie Lee Jewelry, Best Friend Craft Club, Selfridge Photography, GB Accessories, Kakini Leis and Treasures by Trish. 

The goal is to raise $2,000 for the OPT program, where students receive training in accounting, banking and financial services, insurance and office administrative support. OPT participants include low-income and at-risk students from a variety of age groups, socioeconomic levels and ethnic backgrounds, including laid-off workers, welfare recipients, single parents, homeless adults and the long-term unemployed.
