Surfers will unite to fight cancer Sunday


Some 180 surfboards are needed to beat last year’s line of 1,674 feet at the sixth annual Survivor Beach benefit from 8 to 10 a.m. Sunday, June 10 on the beach near Scripps Pier, 8600 El Paseo Grande.

Hosted by the 19th Annual Moores UCSD Cancer Center Luau & Longboard Invitational, Survivor Beach was created in 2007 as a way to bring together the community to honor individuals in their fight against cancer, and to show support for making more people cancer survivors.

The line will start at Scripps Pier and extend toward La Jolla Shores.

Every ticket/board registered will be entered into a raffle for the chance to win two tickets to the 2012 Luau & Longboard Invitational (Aug. 19) and other surf prizes.
