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.
