On July 6, 2014, Newport Beach Lifeguard and former JG Instructor, Ben Carlson made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty while saving the life of another. On this day each year, we pay tribute to the sacrifice he made. This year, Ben Carlson Day falls on a Friday and is an optional JG event.
As part of the Ben Carlson Day event, there will be a running and ocean swim event open to all current Newport Beach Junior Lifeguards. Additionally, there will be other celebration elements to honor Ben and the role of ocean lifeguards in the community. JGs should wear their JG uniform or their Ben Carlson gear.
Be sure to mark your calendars for this epic event! More specifics will be posted as additional event details are confirmed.
