        Having a Field Day

        SRNS hosts inaugural event to benefit Heart Association

            SRNS recently hit another homerun for the American
            Heart Association (AHA) at the Inaugural Field Day
            Event. Eight teams competed in traditional field day
            events, raising more than $2,600 for the AHA.
            As a joint effort from SRNS leadership organizations Leaders
            Emerging Among Professionals (LEAP) and Aspiring Mid-Career
            Professionals (AMP), Field Day offered employees a chance to
            create teams and compete while raising money and awareness
            about cardiovascular disease and stroke.
            Teams competed in various field day events including cornhole,
            boardwalk, tug-of-war, home run derby and multiple relay races.
            During the relay race competition, teams went head-to-head in
            events like the dizzy bat spin, sack races and a three-legged race.   The SRNL “Field of Hearts” team puts science to work in the tug-of-war event.
