Delphi Students Support Amgen Tour of California!

May 18, 2016
  • Delphi Academy of Los Angeles was invited by Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) to watch the Amgen Tour of California ride by our school on Foothill Blvd, and to provide encouragement to the riders during their San Diego to Sacramento tour. Our students, Pre-K through High School, enthusiastically got into the action by cheering, showing hand-made signs and using fun noise-makers to provide the riders with bursts of encouragement!
