Saipan mayor’s office prepares new venue for Marianas March Against Cancer

SINCE last week, the Saipan mayor’s office has been preparing the new site for the annual Marianas March Against Cancer which will be held this year at the Airport Field in Dandan.

The MMAC organizers can now start setting up their canopies and banners for the biggest fundraising event of the Commonwealth Cancer Association on May 3 and 4, Mayor David M. Apatang said.

He said his office is also assisting in marking the area and setting up banners.

The mayor’s field operations director, Joann Aquino, said the site preparation has been laborious because there are still trees damaged by Typhoon Yutu that have to be removed.

Since this is a new venue, they have to make sure it will be cleared of any object that can hamper the flow of the parade and the movement of the march participants, she added.

The MMAC’s usual venue is Hopwood Middle School but it was destroyed by the typhoon.
