In response to the many questions surrounding the Team ID and Convio px number being associated with your RFLofSL account – with the help of Blue Myanamotu (Builders Brewery Relay Team), we have established step-by-step instructions for the entire registration process from start to finish. The instructions have been divided by task so that you can jump to the specific task that you’re trying to accomplish.
If you still have questions, please reach out to a member of the committee and they will be happy to provide guidance and assistance.
The Complete Registration and Setup Step By Step
The American Cancer Society in Second Life just got bigger! We are excited to bring the ACS Cancer Action Network into Second Life, continuing our commitment to provide as many opportunities for the residents of Second Life to fight cancer as American Cancer Society volunteers in many diverse ways.
The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (CAN) is partnering with the Relay for Life of SecondLife. Together, we CAN fight back against cancer. ACS CAN is the nation’s leading cancer advocacy organization. They are working every day to make cancer issues a national priority. Many of the most important decisions about cancer are made outside of your doctor’s office. They are made at city hall, by our state legislature, in Congress, and in the White House. Globally they are made at places like the World Health Organization and in trade summits.
I am encouraging all Relayers to join the ACS CAN campaign, because membership empowers us as regular people to be part of the growing national movement that is fighting back against cancer. Together we are able to hold lawmakers accountable for their words and their actions. Talk about making a difference! Together we can make history!
At ACS Island, the ACS CAN Café is now a part of our total package. The impact we can have in our community is huge. Reaching out through relay to advocate through involvement, influence and impact can help at the local, federal and international level. Having our voices heard will make a difference. Stop by and find your state on the large floor map. See what issues are going on at your local level and then look at their report card. Find your state petitions and sign them. Then look at the national issues and let your voices be heard in Washington. Learn what ACS Can is doing Globally. Regular discussions will be held about the things that matter in ACSCAN with a weekly ACS CAN Café Coffee Chat.
- Join ACS “Picture a Cure” Café and drop off a photo.
- Have your voice be heard on the “Your Voice Maters” display.
- Sign the megaphone and tell us what you speak for.
- Join the “What Brings you Joy” Program.

February is Heart Health Awareness Month
Can you get cancer of the heart?
Heart cancer (primary cardiac tumor) is cancer that arises in the heart. Cancerous (malignant) tumors that begin in the heart are most often sarcomas, a type of cancer that originates in the soft tissues of the body.
With lung cancer, cancerous cell can be found in the fluid that surround the heart.
Heart disease can be a serious late effect of certain cancer treatments. The actual damage to the heart may occur during treatment, but the effects may not show up until many years, or even decades later.
Keep your heart healthy by eating a diet low in saturated fats, eat more fruit and vegetables, stop smoking if you smoke, exercise regularly and schedule regular wellness exams.
Every year the American Cancer Society publishes a Cancer Awareness Calendar to recognize the many different cancer-related awareness campaigns that occur throughout the year.
Not all of them are coordinated by the American Cancer Society…however, we whole heartily support efforts to create a greater awareness of cancer!
World Cancer Day
Every year on February 4th, the American Cancer Society joins other organizations and people around the world to unite in the global fight against cancer. The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) organizes World Cancer Day, which is marked by events to raise awareness at an individual, community, and governmental level to implement what we already know about cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment.

Change is always a part of Relay For Life of Second Life. For years, we’ve embraced it and we encourage new ideas while keeping respect for tradition. The tone for the 2016 event was set from the August wrap-up of 2015. New performances at wrap-up, a new way to make strides, our Haunting For A Cure appreciation party, and our new committee structure are all manifestations of that commitment to keep adapting to the ever-changing climate in Second Life.
In that same spirit of change, we are excited to announce that a NEW committee position has been established: the Estate Manager. This position was created as part of our continuous effort to improve region performance during Relay For Life and Mega events. Some of the primary responsibilities of this position will include the establishment of new “Building Recommendations” for anyone who intends to build on a Relay For Life or Mega Event region. The position will also host regular training opportunities for builders, with the topic being: How to build with a focus on region performance without sacrificing creativity. The position will also be focused on region performance leading up to and during Relay weekend.
We are excited to announce that Sue Peregrine has accepted the position. Sue has also brought on Polgara Llewellyn (Pol) to assist her in this position. Sue & Pol are the estate managers for D’Alliez Estates. Combined, they have many years of successful estate management experience and are familiar with the many intricacies that affect region performance, including what and how we build, what we wear, and what we can expect from Linden Lab.
