RFL Weekend

Hi hi!  I should have really got a post up before now because RFL weekend is in full swing.

What is Relay For Life of Second Life?

Relay For Life is the signature event of the American Cancer Society and has been active, and continually growing  in Second Life for 7 years.  In 2005, the first Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL) was attended by a few hundred avatars and raised almost $5,000 US dollars for the American Cancer Society. Five years later, in 2010 the Relay For Life of Second Life raised over $220,000.  The 1 MILLIONTH US dollar was raised in 2011 when more than 2000 volunteers raised over $375,000.  In 2012 we passed the 1.5 million dollar mark and continued to fundraise without a pause.

Relay Weekend  is a fun-filled, overnight event that unites SL individuals throughout the world to celebrate survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer), remember loved ones and raise money for the fight against cancer.

Coffee!!! Early morning RFL

This year I helped design a half of a sim along the track.  The theme is “Time for a Cure”, and there’s a lot of really awesome builds along the huge track where people have been walking.

I’ve been hanging about the area, walking and participating a bit myself.

Please take a few and come down.  Purchase something from an RFL vendor… get a luminaria to light…. it’s for a great cause.

As an extra aside…. the build I did will be gone so quickly and I was hoping to have a memento or two.

!¦[·      TAKE SOME PICTURES AND SHARE!        ·]¦!·

I’d love for you guys to take a walk around the track, and I’d love for you to see what I built for the track.  I think it looks pretty cool.  It’s half of a sim, and only going to be up through the weekend.  Only two days!  *sobs*  So in that vein I’d love and implore all you people who love to take pictures in different ways to go take a few and share!

Anyone who posts pictures from the RFL event this year and specifically ones of the area I designed will be given a gift from the store, my favorite pics might even win a little extra.  You never know.

Post your pictures to the flicker for the store:  http://www.flickr.com/groups/roawenwood/

Pictures can be posted from the event now through July 17th to be eligible.

Closing ceremonies are at 10 a.m. today!

Heard they’re keeping the sims open for at least part of the week… maybe even till Friday!  Woot!

So you can still go take a gander at all the awesome builds.
