Fight Mesothelioma, Raise Awareness, Have Fun


Fight Mesothelioma, Raise Awareness, Have Fun


This Sunday, May 3, sunny Dana Point, California will host the 9 th Annual Dana Point Grand Prix (DPGP). Professional cyclists, amateurs, and kids (yes kids!) will race around downtown Dana Point in the largest single day criterion race in America!

The races will begin at 7:00 a.m. sharp and will include 13 races total, including free Youth Races sponsored by the Dana Point Community Cycling Foundation. There will also be a $12,000 Pro Women’s criterium prize, the largest in Southern California history. It’s not allabout cycling of course, there will be music, food, and craft beer to be enjoyed by all, cyclist or not.

John Johnson Family

In remembrance of John Johnson and his courageous fight against Mesothelioma, the Johnson Family is sponsoring the final event of the day, the John Johnson Family Pro NCC Classic for the third year in a row. John Johnson was a veteran and plumber who was poisoned by asbestos, contracted mesothelioma, underwent aggressive treatment to prolong his life, but ultimately succumbed to the disease.

After his death, the Johnson family set out to increase public awareness of this horrible disease which disproportionately affects military veterans, by providing substantial funding for a mesothelioma treatment center at the West Los Angeles VA Medical Center, and by pushing for changes in the law which impacts the rights of all mesothelioma sufferers. John’s son, Michael, is a competitive cyclist who will be participating in the day’s events and is also a hard-charging advocate and source of information and support for mesothelioma patients and their families.

We would love to see you there!

All Proceeds from the DPGP Youth Races benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Capistrano Valley.
