Annual Jerry Finnell Memorial Walk to be held May 18

A single daisy, the flower symbolically associated with “loyal love,” will be presented to each participant in the annual Jerry Finnell Memorial Walk to be held May 18 by Del Mar Community Connections on the Del Mar Beach.

Carol German, chair, said the flower serves as a biodegradable memento that can be tossed in the ocean by walkers along the way with thoughts of loved ones. “The walk celebrates health, family, friends, memories…all the connections that define our lives,” she added. The event will begin at 8:30 a.m. in Powerhouse Park with greetings by Mayor Carl Hilliard and Kathy Finnell, widow of the late Del Mar councilman Jerry Finnell. A continental breakfast that includes coffee, tea, fruit, bagels and spreads will follow.. The walk starts at 9 a.m. At the end of the walk, lemon cake–a Del Mar tradition— will be served to participants, also in Powerhouse Park.

To register, call 858 792-7565 or visit www.dmcc.cc. Individual rates are $25 adult, and $15 for a child. A family rate of two adults and their children is offered at $50.

Proceeds will benefit work of the Del Mar Community Connections, a volunteer-driven organization dedicated to enriching community life in Del Mar by promoting independence and well-being among seniors and those with special needs.
