Relay For Life of Second Life kicks off it’s fundraising season on March 7-9th with a weekend FULL of celebration! Teams have been registering and will be present at the kick-off regions with team vendors, kiosks and flags waving to show their team spirit. If you haven’t registered a team yet click on the orange button on the right side of this page to do so and come join us! The festivities begin on Friday evening with T1 radio on the mic as teams set up their fundraising tools and the pep rally takes place. On Saturday at noon the official Kick-Off Ceremony will begin. This year’s ceremony will be presented by the 2014 Steering Committee, Stingray Raymaker, Nikki Mathieson, Dawnbeam Dreamscape and Random Padar Darrow. It will also include a survivor speaker NickiB27 and readings from this year’s Division Chairs, Gemstone Sunkiller (Internal Support), Sunshine Zhangsun (Events/Design), Serina Juran (PR, Outreach) and Dwen Dooley (Tech). The ceremony will conclude with the traditional PARADE OF TEAMS and with that, the 2014 RFL of SL Journey will officially begin!
DJ hosted music and dancing will run throughout the afternoon and evening of Saturday, March 8th while lots of fun and games will take place on Sunday, the 9th. Games include Family Feud, Pictionary and a Relay kissing booth, where it just takes 1700L raised to earn this years coveted, ‘Kiss me I RELAY’ T-Shirt. Plan to spend the weekend Relaying by joining the Kick-Off Celebration and by visiting team events, which you can keep track of by visiting this page.
