MUST SUPPORT

On Aug. 3, the San Diego Junior Lifeguard Festival™ will start with its first Willie Calabrese Mem-orial Run/Swim/Run in honor of William Calabrese, a Pacific Beach native who passed away Sept. 2 after being critically injured in a fireworks accident.

The event will be held on the beach at 3400 Ocean Front Walk and 700 Ventura Place in Mission Beach, and is open to the public. The event involves a two-mile run from Mission Beach to Crystal Pier, a half-mile swim around the pier, and a two-mile run back to the finish line. Check-in is at 6:30 a.m. and the event starts at 8 a.m.

Participants can register at the event for $30, which includes a T-shirt. All proceeds will go to the San Diego Junior Lifeguard Foundation™, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting drowning prevention that Calabrese was active in.

MUST DO

To raise awareness and reduce the amount of cigarette-butt litter in the region, the Surfrider Foundation San Diego County Chapter will host its annual Hold Onto Your Butt Awareness Day on Sunday, Aug. 4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m at Mission Beach.

Cigarette butts are the most littered item in the world. The number of cigarette butts found on beaches and nearby areas accounts for approximately 40 percent of the items collected during Surfrider’s monthly beach cleanups. 

Volunteer activists will gather on Mission Beach to encourage beachgoers to dispose of cigarettes safely.

For more information, visit sandiego.surfrider.org/campaigns/hold-on-to-your-butt or reach campaign leader Dukes Wooters at dukes@surfridersd.org or 610-316-8391.

MUST GO

Pacific Beach Neighborhood Watch groups and St. Andrew’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church will host neighbors in a National Night Out event on Aug. 6. This annual event is designed to reinforce relations between the community and police in the fight against crime.

The event takes place at 7 p.m. at the church, located at 1050 Thomas Ave.

More than 50 Neighborhood Watch groups in Pacific Beach and police officials hope to use the event to highlight PB as a model for other communities.

This is an event to raise awareness of how communities can work together to reduce crime and increase safety, and it will be a fun night for the community to be outside enjoying the summer evening together.
