Survivor Beach Event at La Jolla Shores, San Diego

May 25, 2012 | By | Reply More

Last year, Survivor Beach surfboards stretched the length of five football fields.

I omitted an important event from the “What To Do In San Diego During the Summer” post I wrote earlier this week.

On Sunday, June 10, from 8 to 10 a.m, La Jolla Shores Beach will be the site of a possible record-breaking line of surfboards, as hundreds of cancer survivors, caregivers, friends and surfers gather together in solidarity in the fight to wipe out cancer.

As part of UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center’s 6th annual Survivor Beach, attendees will line surfboards along the shore, nose-to-tail, from Scripps Pier down La Jolla Shores Beach, in a stunning visual display.

At last year’s event, the line reached more than five football fields in length (1,674 feet, ~ 180 surfboards) down the beach, and sponsors are hoping to break that record this year.

Survivor Beach is a free event and everyone is welcome.

If you are on vacation in San Diego on Sunday, June 10, I hope you’ll come and join us.

About the Author ()

I live in La Jolla and I'm a travel writer, so in addition to enjoying my home town's great weather, beautiful surroundings, and range of cultural and recreational options, I also see La Jolla - and the rest of San Diego - as a travel destination. And what I see sometimes drives me batty. People vacation in La Jolla, but don't take advantage of everything our community offers, so I decided to start this blog and provide insider advice for out-of-towners. Hey. I figure if I can write insider tips about exotic destinations on Authentic Luxury Travel, I ought to be able to lead readers off the beaten path that starts just outside my front door. In the process, I'm having fun revisiting my favorite places and discovering some new ones. Travel writers are naturally snoopy, and this blog is my excuse to have a good ol' sticky beak around my home town. I hope you find it helpful. If you are coming to La Jolla or another area of San Diego and would like my help in planning your trip, please read "Need Help Planning Your Trip" and then email me at ehansen298@aol.com.
