Its that time of the year again! The American Cancer Society’s signature event Relay For Life is getting underway in Second Life™
Last year residents raised over L$55,000,000! Let’s work together to smash that total!
Relay for Life Teams form in February and March and they fund raise by holding events in SL from March through July.
To help in the fight, join us on Feb 14, 2009 at our Registration Pep Rally at American Cancer Society Island, 12pm slt – 2pm slt.
The new online registrations process will be explained in detail!
Each team will be assigned to a team mentor. Your mentor will contact you and introduce themselves as your team mentor.
Each team captain will be given donation kiosks and vendors that are scripted so their team gets credit for the amount collected.
The monies go from the kiosk directly into the ACS account.
We are all excited about Relay for Life in Second Life 2009!!
We are expecting more teams than last year, to raise more money than last year, and to have many more fund raising events than ever before.
Don’t worry if you miss the registration day you can continue to register right up to March 14th contact MamaP Beerbaum for team registration information
It all starts on March 14 at the 2009 RFL in SL Kick Off Party.
On May 31 there will be a Midway Relay Rally, and it all culminates with the Official RFL in SL overnight Relay on July 18th & 19th, 2009.
Team members gather at their Team Campsites they have built, walk the RFL in SL Track, enjoy live music, participate in fun events, and explore the many Relay Sims as the event runs overnight and into the next morning.
In 2008, over 75 RFL SL Teams participated in the largest virtual fundraising walk in the world and this year the number will be even higher.
“Individuals who are willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event, as a volunteer or participant, have made a commitment to fight back against this disease and let the community know that you can beat cancer.”

Fighting cancer is a team effort. The strength of people coming together for a common cause is greater than the strength of one. Teams are the spirit of Relay for Life in SL!
UNTIL THERE IS A CURE….WE RELAY!
