NORWALK - Combining a friendly spirit of competition with community goodwill, Cerritos College will host its annual Turkey Trot on Nov. 17.To enter the 1.5-mile walk/run, participants must donate one canned food item, which is then given to the city of Norwalk's Food Bank for need families in the Norwalk area. Each year, the event raises nearly 1,000 cans of food from its 200-plus participants. Many who participate choose to exceed the one-can requirement, while others choose not to walk or run but donate to the event. The first 100 finishers will receive a commemorative Turkey Trot T-shirt. A raffle will be held at 11:45 a.m. Race participants do not need to be present to win. Pre-registration is encouraged by calling Dr. Ni Bueno at (562) 860-2451, ext. 2874.
