hawaii day

Hawaii Day

Date: TBA / summer 2024

Hawaii Day highlights the Aloha Spirit – the idea that “aloha” means much more than a greeting or farewell. It’s mutual regard and caring for everyone in our world by extending kindness without expecting anything in return. On this special day, the San Diego Junior lifeguards are encouraged to swim, run and paddle the 2500 miles to collectively reach Hawaii. This is a fun-raiser competition the JG’s look forward to each year. Proceeds from this event benefit the PDFSD efforts to provide SDJG scholarships and free swimming lessons for youth without access in San Diego.
