The community can get a bite of breakfast and an earful of information about the upcoming Relay for Life during the relay’s kickoff event Saturday at Pajarito Masonic Lodge.Information and sign up will be held from 8-10 a.m. and the kick off ceremony will be from 9-10 a.m.While the Masons cook up waffles, Relay for Life chairwoman Hilde Fitzgerald said, information about the relay will be distributed and people will be given the opportunity to “pick our brains.”People can also register to be on a relay team.The cost of the breakfast is $5, and all the proceeds will go toward Relay for Life.Relay for Life will start at 6 p.m. Aug. 1 and end at noon Aug 2. In the past, the event was held at Ashley Pond, but this year the event will be moved to the high school track. Fitzgerald said walking on the track will be safer at night, plus there are bathroom facilities on the site.Relay for Life has had a successful history in Los Alamos. Fitzgerald said last year, $40,000 was raised. This year the goal is to raise $50,000. Another success story is that in 2006, Los Alamos earned a national award for having the highest numbers of cancer survivors participate in the relay. She estimated 400 survivors participated last year.Fitzgerald credited the growing awareness of cancer in the community.
