On July 13, Haley Watson, founder of the MayDay Memorial Surf Classic, made a check presentation to Halifax Health – Foundation to support cardiology services. This year, Watson’s MayDay Memorial Surf Classic raised $2,500 for the hospital foundation. In its sixth year, the surfing competition is held annually at Flagler Beach Pier in honor of Watson’s mother Dollie Sue Watson, who passed away from heart disease at age 46 in 2006.
