New details and dates for Relay For Life of Second Life 2014

On 22nd January 2014 the first news edition from Nikki Mathieson was published via group notice for the 2014 RFL of SL season which starts very soon. Nikki Mathieson is the 2014 RFL of SL Event Chair and apparently more than 110,000 USD has already been earned for the 2014 fund-raising season which is incredible.

This year marks the tenth year anniversary for Second Life Relay For Life and I do think its going to be the biggest season ever with more new records being set. Hopefully more will take part this year as it’s the tenth year anniversary which is going to be very special indeed.

Don’t forget to add these important dates on your calendars because the countdown has started. 🙂

RFL of Second Life 2014

Spread the word and take part in one the biggest annual grid events there is in Second Life. I can’t wait for the 2014 season to get underway and it’s going to be another amazing year.

InWorldz Relay For Life 2nd Season 2014 

Planning for the RFL of IW 2014 season is underway and dates are yet to be set. I do think that other OpenSim grids should support Relay for Life which would be fantastic. I’ll be sure to blog about it and spread the word about it.

Lets support, hope and continue the fight to a cure in 2014.
