The mission and the operation remain identical to previous years, but this year’s Relay for Life, Los Alamos has a new appearance.
Before, the event was held in conjunction to the Los Alamos Summer Concert series and set at Ashley Pond.
However, event chair Hilde Fitzgerald explained there were some safety concerns about the pond setting and with the municipal building being torn down right next door.
“I needed a plan B,” she said.
The alternative option brought the event to Sullivan Field; Fitzgerald said this actually follows the steps of many other relays held across the U.S. The common location is a high school track.
The local relay will begin at its new location at 6 p.m. Friday and continue through noon Saturday.
The event, which will feature the theme, “Atomic City’s War on Cancer,” will includes a cancer survivor kick-off lap at 6 p.m., and live music starting at 6:30 p.m. Friday.
Children’s interests have also been considered. Friday, Patti Cake the Clown and Party to Go will be offering their services.
Saturday, breakfast will be on the Masons starting at 10 a.m. The breakfast is free to relay teams and $6 to the public.
Although the local Relay for Life follows a national format, it does take a few liberties to make it unique to Los Alamos.
