Breast Cancer Cheering Station

Nov 15, 2019

You're invited to join us as we cheer on thousands of walkers who will be participating in the largest 3-day walk in the nation!

We will have a water, music and cheer station to root on the walkers, who will start their journeys at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and receive a huge show of support as they enter the Del Mar Village - the first city on their journey! Volunteers decorate the street with pink balloons and ribbons, and hand out water to each walker. Del Mar's lifeguards and firefighters will be present to show their support. The Torrey Pines High School ASB & cheerleaders will also be on hand to turn Del Mar into an unforgettable pep rally!

We want Del Mar to be the the town they remember, so help us be present and share your experience with #DelMarHasHope.
