Be a virtual volunteer in a 3D event!

acspc-044690

Second Life® is the largest ever 3D virtual world built entirely by its users. It’s also the home of a different type of American Cancer Society community event – a virtual one. Since its inception in 2004, Relay For Life of Second Life has raised over $2 million for the fight against cancer. Team members do many of the same things that you see at a live Relay event. They walk 3D world laps, light virtual Luminaria, and make donations using digital currency Linden dollars. In addition, in 2014, a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer virtual event was also added to Second Life.

Mission Facts

All the the American Cancer Society does begins and ends with the mission in mind.

A mission statement is a brief description of an organization’s fundamental purpose. It answers the question, “Why do we exist?” Think of it as the, “Who, What, Where, When, Why, How?”

The mission for the American Cancer Society

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.

The American Cancer Society has an international mission

The American Cancer Society’s international mission concentrates on capacity building in developing cancer societies and on collaboration with other cancer-related organizations throughout the world in carrying out shared strategic directions.

The Relay For Life® Mission Statement

The hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated.

The goal of the American Cancer Society is to provide support, information, and resources to all the individuals that need it through our programs and services accessible through our toll-free number 800-227-2345 and Website www.cancer.org
