It’s (nearly) time to ….. Relay

The Relay For Life of Second Life Kick Off Celebration is on March 10, 2012.

The Relay For Life of SL Kick Off Celebration is on March 10, 2012.  The sims are open from 8 AM-11 PM and events run throughout the day, including the Ceremony at 10 AM and a hunt from Noon-11 PM.

This year, the RFL of SL theme is a Time For A Cure.   We can all say that and mean it and feel it, but the reason why it’s so appropriate is because science is finally catching up with the mysteries of what cancer is and why we have it.  They understand so much of what happens when cells mutate and so we really can sense that in the future; we hope not too far in the future, that a cure for cancer really is possible.

Raising funds, raising awareness and supporting one another is something we do really well on Second Life.  We can and do make a difference.  Relay For Life of Second life raised over $375,000 last year and in total since RFL of SL started in 2004 it has raised an amazing $1.2 million dollars.

While we work at raising funds over the next 4 months, one thing we also do really well on  Second Life is have fun!

The Relay for what?

Relay For Life® is the signature fundraiser of the American Cancer Society. Relay For Life of Second Life (RFLSL) is an annual philanthropic campaign that starts in March each year and culminates in an inspiriational 24 hour track based event where teams and individuals can walk around a track that passes through some of the most incredible sims you will find, built by some of the best creators, all in with the objective of raising awareness and funds for cancer research.

The main RFL of SL track event this year will take place on July 14-15 running through the night.
