2016 Changes – Update

changeThere has been a lot of confusion surrounding some of the changes for the upcoming Relay For Life of Second Life season. After several days of listening and having personal conversations with Team Captains and volunteers,  the Steering Committee and I feel it is important to amend and explain these changes.

Most importantly, we’d like to thank all of the volunteers who, over the years, have given so much of themselves, their time, and their donations. We understand that the Relay For Life of Second Life is very different than any other event in the world…and that there are many ways to Relay. We understand that not every volunteer has the resources to fundraise at the same levels, and that we have many teams who provide so much value to the spirit of community and support that is equally important to the event as the fundraising dollars. It’s what makes up the special “Spirit of Relay” that we care so much about.

That being said, we want for everyone to be more comfortable talking about fundraising. Dr. Gordy Klatt started Relay For Life because he wanted to do something in his community to raise money for the American Cancer Society because he understood that cancer research is very expensive.  He also understood that in order to raise substantial money, he needed to do something hard. He needed to challenge himself…and his friends. The fact that he was attempting to do something so hard is what motivated his friends and family to support him…with time and with donations. Relay For Life was never meant to be “easy.” If it were easy, we wouldn’t be doing it. We do it because we all embrace the challenge. We embrace the challenge because we all know a loved one who faced a much tougher challenge…and this is the least we can do to honor their memory. When we form a team, we make that commitment to work tirelessly to raise money…because we know that every dollar counts…and because we believe in the success of the American Cancer Society…and we know that without our fundraising dollars, we wouldn’t have the early prevention and treatment options that we do today.

OUR Relay’s most treasured tradition is our “One Team” spirit. It is the reason for our success and it is fueled by our Spirit of Relay. And so, in keeping with our Second Life Relay tradition, to embrace the passion as well the fundraising, to honor those who give of themselves, as well as those who give their Lindens, The Steering Committee has worked over the last several days to adjust the changes for 2016. In addition to these changes, we are also committed to improving the Awards program to raise the focus on the non-fundraising elements of Relay For Life.

  1. All teams with a fundraising total will appear on the Totals Page
  2. All teams will be listed on the “our teams” page (no change from last year)
  3. All teams on the Totals Page are eligible for a campsite
  4. The fundraising club levels will remain as they are…with Rising Star being the first level at $100
  5. We are introducing the Individual Convio Fundraising Club, where RL prizes can be won through Convio fundraising achievement

Please remember that the fundraising club is a recognition for accomplishment. It is a reward that should inspire teams to challenge themselves to reach as high as they can go. For some teams, the Rising Star level is a great accomplishment…and we will celebrate that! Because in order for us to reach our $300,000 goal for 2016…which will also be our $3 millionth all-time…we’re going to need EVERY team…EVERY dollar…EVERY linden.  And just as important, we’re going to need to work together to do it!  We thank you all for your commitment and your passion…and your trust in the Steering Committee. And we challenge every one of our teams to set their first goal at the Rising Star Level!!

WE WANT YOU ON THE TRACK!

With Sincere Gratitude,
