Just a quick reminder that next weekend marks the start of the 2018 Relay Weekend in Second Life which will take place on Saturday 15th from 10am SLT & Sunday 16th July 2018. It’s going to be another great successful event and I’m sure new records will be set.
All these Relay For Life of Second Life events bring communities together to remember loved ones and honor survivors to raise money to help the American Cancer Society.

2018 RFL Schedule
Opening Ceremony: 10am SLT (Jul 14)
Time to get started. We kick off the event by honoring everyone who’s been affected by cancer and everyone who has contributed to the success of this year’s Relay season.
Survivor/Caregiver Walk: 11am SLT (Jul 14)
“Survivors and Caregivers are the heart and soul of Relay For Life events. We honor their strength and courage with every step they take. It doesn’t matter if you were diagnosed 10 days ago or 10 years ago, you can walk while everyone gathers together to cheer you on”.
Luminaria Ceremony: 9pm SLT (Jul 14)
“During this ceremony we represent everyone touched by cancer with a Luminaria. Each light represents a life—a life taken by cancer, a survivor of cancer, or a support for a person still fighting the disease. It’s a powerful demonstration that gives people the opportunity to grieve but also offers comfort and hope”.
Closing Ceremony: 9am SLT (Jul 15)
“Our closing ceremony is the time to commit to take action and help lead the fight for a world free from cancer. It’s a time to celebrate what we’ve accomplished together and a time to unify for the work that needs to be done moving forward”.
