The walkway around Building 19 and the College Green at Clover Park Technical College’s Lakewood Campus has seen a lot of new activity this week as the CPTC Foundation is hosting its first Walk-A-Thon Aug. 7-11.
The event is part of the annual staff and faculty fund drive and is being used to help kick off the Foundation’s new three-year campaign to raise $75,000 for Emergency Assistance for CPTC students. While it’s targeted at staff and faculty, students and members of the public are welcome to participate.
“I’ve always wanted to do a walk-a-thon,” CPTC Foundation Development Manager Janet Holm said. “It’s a fun thing to do to get people involved, be healthy and raise some money for student assistance.”
