SoCal Lifeguard Paddledown for Cancer Relay

SoCal Lifeguard Paddledown for Cancer Relay 2015 dates to be announced soon!

100 to 150 CA Lifeguards will do a 250 mile ocean relay paddle from Gaviota State Beach to Imperial State Beach, CA.

Please support our SoCal Paddledown, which in turn provides important education to our local youth.  Block the Blaze is a youth skin cancer education program that teaches youth the importance of sun safety, skin cancer prevention, self screening and provides the tools to youth that they need to get started playing it safe in the sun.  Block the Blaze is supplying presentations, sunscreen and hats to over 27,000 junior lifeguards this summer.
