Date: Friday, July 6
Location: Junior Lifeguard Headquarters
On this day, we pay tribute to fallen Newport Beach Lifeguard and former JG Instructor, Ben Carlson. On July 6, 2014, Ben Carlson made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty while saving the life of another.
NEW THIS YEAR! This year, Ben Carlson Day falls on a Friday and is an optional JG event. There will be a running and ocean swim event as well as other celebration elements to honor Ben and the role of ocean lifeguards in the community. More specifics will be emailed as additional event details are confirmed. JGs should wear their JG uniform or their Ben Carlson gear.
