SL MUSIC RACES FOR A CURE! We are happy and proud to now be members of this amazing team that brings all parts of the SL music community together to stand together against cancer, to relay for a cure. This year, two teams come together for a great kick-off event: RFL MUSIC FEST. March 10-17. SL MUSIC RACES FOR A CURE and HEROES FOR LIFE join together for this week-long kick-off event. We thank our Captains: Still Braveheart, Syd Baddingham, Liz Harley and Precious Rallier (Co-Captains), and all those who continue to work toward such successful events in SL. Some great musicians will provide the live music for the Music Fest, which will be held at the corner of Relay Boulevard and Cure Avenue. There will be vendors available which will house only Relay sale items, along with the regular shops along the street. It will be great fun for all and a fantastic kick-off event! http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/the%20breakers/32/152/22
Relay For Life® is the signature fundraiser of the American Cancer Society. Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL) is an annual activity that takes place in Second Life® in July each year. Volunteers form or join teams to have fun while fundraising and raising awareness from mid-March through mid-July. In July teams build campsites and walk a track, just like in a real world Relay. The main RFL of SL track event this year will take place on July 14-15. We will walk a virtual track for 24 hours, just like in a real world Relay For Life. Team members build and gather at their team campsites, enjoy live music, participate in fun events, and explore the many Relay sims and the incredible builds by some of SL’s top designers, as the event runs overnight and into the next morning.
Yes, indeed it is Time for a Cure! Do whatever you can to support these and other Relay for Life efforts in SL – and RL. Your help will be greatly appreciated, as all benefit when progress is made. THANK YOU! Below are some RFL events coming up. See you there!
