A special race to aid those with disabilities in the country of Nicaragua is scheduled for this weekend.
The David Fellers Healing Art Foundation will host a 3-mile, 6-mile and wheelchair roll in Los Alamos Saturday. The race is scheduled to start at 2:30 p.m.
The event is a fundraiser for the foundation, which was founded in 2008 by the surviving family of David Fellers.
The race begins at the west end of Canyon Rim Trail just off N.M. 502. Following the races, an auction and picnic is scheduled at De Colores restaurant.
While registrations have been very light so far, coordinator Sally Fellers is hopeful the community will come out and support the foundation’s efforts.
“It would be great if it’s successful,” Fellers said. “We’d like it to be an annual event.”
The David Fellers Healing Art Foundation is named after the son of Jack and Sally Fellers. He was born in 1978 with severe respiratory problems and was limited to a bed or wheelchair for most of his life, along with being completely deaf.
When he was born, Fellers’ life expectancy was 15 years. He was able to make it to age 30, however, thanks in large part to the love and support of Jack and Sally and other family members.
