The Tour de Central is an annual happening where Ocean Lifeguards “race” from Venice Beach to Will Rodgers State Beach completing a series of swims and runs including an initial swim around the Venice Pier.  The competitors did not receive awards but reputations were definitely at stake among these athletes!

Winners are shown with Lauren Elkins, the director of Nutritional Services at Marina Del Rey Hospital, and Dr. Paul Silka, Executive VP at EmCare. Also pictured, all of the lifeguard participants of this years event.
 
PLF has sponsored Academic Scholarships for Los Angeles County Ocean Lifeguards who are full time students since 1996.
