You know, I have said before that you can build assets at any age and late night Fridays in Los Alamos, proved that philosophy.
The annual Relay for Life event kicked off with a Cancer Survivor’s Lap. The participants walked the first lap to begin the event, which took volunteers and walkers late into the night.
The lap was preceded by a dinner, flowers and a presentation by Dr. Eric Bernstein, an oncologist with New Mexico Cancer Care at the Los Alamos Medical Center.
Doug Stavert, Ann Sherrard and Katie Stavert, along with a furry friend, scooped and swept a large build-up of water that had collected around the pond prior to the arrival of walkers that have been through — or are currently going through — the battle.
The chair of the local American Cancer Society chapter, John Hofmann, greeted the arrival of the survivors led by bagpipers, while wife Sue, handed out survivor banners to the men, women and a few young people on hand to inspire the fundraising walkers.
According to the Relay for Life website, there were 11 participants, 13 teams and more than $15,000 raised for the effort.
If we look a little closer to home, the Los Alamos Council on Cancer helps those in the heat of the battle with a variety of local events and resources.
