It’s the largest fundraising event in the virtual worlds. This is the 40+ sim event that features all of our teams, as we walk together for 24 hours around the track. Cancer never sleeps…and so for one night each year, we refuse to sleep, to show our commitment to the fight against cancer.
After everyone gets some much deserved rest, we come together one last time to recognize each other for a job well done. Here, we celebrate our success for the year, hand out various awards to teams and participants, and reveal some early news about the next Relay season.
Wow, alot of great exciting RFL of SL events to look forward to during 2014. Hopefully next year new records, more money will be raised with more interest on the grid. We will have to see what happens and I’m sure everyone is excited to see the 2014 lineup already (shown above). Wooooot!
