You meet people there who become your friends for years to come. 32 sims and 24 hours of joy, laughter, tears, entertainment, hunts, celebration, remembrance and fighting back against cancer. It is a time the relayers from around the world unite at a common place for a common goal.” said Relay For Life of Second Life 2017 Chair Nuala Maracas. “ We > Me and together WE can work to support the American Cancer Society mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer. Come join us!”

Come take a journey with us over three dozen sims featuring shopping, auctions, a special hunt, concerts, memorials and more. The Opening Ceremony of Relay Weekend will be 10 a.m. SLT July 15 and the Closing Ceremony will be 10 a.m. July 16.

Over 100 teams have been hard at work since March holding events across the grid to raise funds for cancer research, support programs, and to support the Society’s mission. Relay Weekend is the culmination of their hard work! Won’t you help by showing your support?
