Dear friends, due to COVID-19, the event date stands, but is tentative. As of current information, there are no restrictions for May 16, but the health of participants is a priority. Check back for updates closer to the event, in case we need to push the date into the summer.
On Saturday, May 16, we are holding a 5K Beach Run Challenge and Beach Walk of Support at the San Clemente Pier Beach to support the lifesaving research of the American Cancer Society and their local services for cancer patients in Orange County. ALL of the proceeds will go to support the Relay For Life campaign. Whether you wish to run, walk or just support the event, we encourage you to become involved as a way to honor friends and family who have battled cancer and those who are their caregivers.
