On the "Prowl" In South County Over the Week-End: People Making A Difference

This was a very interesting week in Orange County.   In the City of Irvine, "Over The Edge" was an event organized by the Boy Scouts of America to support the Scouting Program in Orange County (Photo Source: The Daily Pilot

Two participants in the Over the Edge experience come down the side of the Irvine Marriott hotel on Friday. Rappellers were asked to raise $1,000 each to benefit the Orange County Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

The MS 150 was also held in South Orange County.  The adventure began at the Irvine Train Station to help raise funds for Multiple Sclerosis.    From discussions with folks on the trail in Laguna Niguel, it is an event that features some 2,000 bikers that begin in Irvine and end in Carlsbad.  It helps to raise some 300,000 Dollars annually to eradicate this debilitating disease.  Part of the challenge was to climb up Pacific Island Drive in Laguna Niguel--those who decided to take the challenge were entitled to receive a commemorative jacket.
