This past weekend’s “celebration of life” brought the Los Alamos community together in a unified effort to fight cancer. Former and current cancer patients, their families, businesses, civic organization, and the general public took part in the American Cancer Society’s Annual Relay for Life – Los Alamos County – Friday and Saturday at Sullivan Field.
This was a change in venue for the event, which has traditionally been held at Ashley Pond. The change was necessitated this year due to the demolition of the Municipal Building.
The event was kicked-off with a survivor’s victory lap around Sullivan Field starting at 6 p.m., followed by a survivors’ banquet at 6:30 p.m., which took place at the entrance to the field.
Teams then took to the track for the 18-hour relay, which ended at noon Saturday.
All during the evening, music, games, face painting and a silent auction were provided by organizers.
People of all ages came out for the event, with many teams camping out on Mesa field, adjacent to the track.
