VENTURA COUNTY, Calif. - Ventura County Junior Lifeguards received hats and sunscreen from the John Wayne Cancer Foundation on Tuesday at Silver Strand Beach.

The Newport Beach based foundation also sent a representative to talk about skin cancer prevention and detection.

Head Lifeguard Johnny Castellano said," The John Wayne Foundation came out yesterday and gave us a little presentation on skin cancer and what we can do to prevent it, from wearing hats, sun block, clothing protection and making sure we reapply our sun block every 45 minutes. They also gave all the kids zinc sun block and a nice John Wayne hat."
