It’s a brand new year, and we need you to help us make this the best year ever in the fight against cancer.
The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life is the world’s largest movement to end cancer. If you’re looking to make the greatest impact to save lives from cancer, this is the most powerful event you will ever participate in. Relay is an inspiring, one-of-a-kind experience that unites people in nearly every corner of the world, as well as virtually, to finish the fight against every kind of cancer. Money and awareness raised from Relay For Life help the American Cancer Society save lives by funding ground breaking research to discover cancer’s causes and cures and help people facing cancer today with support programs and services.
Relay For Life is a team fundraising event. Teams set fundraising goals, then organize and hold several fundraising events during our Relay season, March – July. As a team fundraising member, you will find donors from across the Second Life grid, perhaps from your own non-virtual family, friends, or co-workers as well. Then, everyone comes together, on July 15 & 16, 2017, for 24 hours of fun that celebrates cancer survivors, remembers loved ones lost to cancer, and unites us in our commitment to fight back against the disease. Relay is traditionally an overnight event that is symbolic of the fact that cancer patients don’t stop because they’re tired, and for one night, neither do we. There are activities and entertainment to keep participants going the entire time!
That’s Relay in a nutshell! We’re always looking for people like you to get involved.
As a team captain you will receive support, information and inspiration all year long. Our Relay For Life of Second Life fundraising season runs from March 5 – August 13, 2017
Can we count on you this year to join us to help finish the fight?
