Del Mar going pink for 3-Day Walk on Friday

Del Mar is now an official cheering station for the San Diego Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk, which starts at the fairgrounds on Friday, Nov. 20.

The Del Mar Village Association is encouraging businesses to decorate in pink along Camino del Mar and hopes area residents will cheer on the walkers by gathering in the Village.

The fundraising walk involves more than 4,000 participants walking up Coast Boulevard to 15th Street. They will turn right on Camino Del Mar/Pacific Coast Highway 101 through downtown Del Mar between 7:30 and 9 a.m.

DMVA is also asking merchants and residents to donate bottled water for walkers. Drop off the water at En Fuego before Nov. 19.

Plans are underway for a hometown pep rally to take place involving Torrey Pines High School students, local businesses and residents and Del Mar lifeguards and firefighters in support of the 3-Day Walkers.

Everyone is asked to lend their support in making Del Mar one of the most memorable cheering stations during the breast cancer fundraising walk.
