This is a special year as the San Diego Lifeguard Service is celebrating its 100 Year Anniversary of service to the City of San Diego. We are expecting a great turn out with some of San Diego’s community leaders taking the jump.  Also jumping this year will be the Lerum Family.  Andy Lerum, a Lifeguard Lt. was one of the first San Diego Junior Lifeguard instructors, he will be jumping with his children, a current Seasonal Lifeguard and a Junior Lifeguard Intern for the City Lifeguard Service. Over the past 20 plus years, the San Diego Junior Lifeguards have successfully managed over 20,000 Junior Lifeguards jumping 20-30 feet into the ocean off the pier.”

San Diego Junior Lifeguard Foundation is dedicated to the advancement of aquatic safety through the many programs it supports including Water Proofing San Diego which includes aquatic safety education in the classroom, learn to swim for free programs and a day at the beach learning about ocean safety for underserved youth.
