The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

The Dana Point Community Cycling Foundation awarded the Boys & Girls Clubs of Capistrano Valley with a $5,000 donation on Dec. 7, which came from the proceeds of last year’s Dana Point Grand Prix of Cycling.
Next year will mark the 12th annual cycling event in Dana Point, which has partnered each year with the Boys & Girls Clubs since its inception. The clubs’ staff help organize the kids’ races for the event.
“We love partnering with the Boys & Girls Clubs and teaching the youth about safe cycling in the community,” said Foundation Vice President Cyndi Elders. “That’s what the Foundation is about.”
The Boys & Girls Clubs Executive Director James Littlejohn said the Foundation has raised over $100,000 for the clubs over the last 12 years.
“I’d like to thank the Foundation for what they’ve done for the kids, and for keeping our kids safe,” Littlejohn said.
