Relay for Life 2012 in SL soon & RFL sims arrive

In a few weeks time the eighth Relay For Life event in Second Life will take place and preparations are underway right now. RFL 2012 takes place on Saturday 14th July through to Sunday 15th July 2012. RFL 2012 this year has 40 sims, many stages and a welcome area. RFL gets bigger and better every year that goes past in Second Life. RFL 2012 theme for this year is Time For A Cure which sounds really good.

I’m looking forward to taking part in RFL 2012 in SL and blogging about the event. 🙂
