Relay for Life Surfer Style!
Submitted by Lissa Pinion
The American Cancer Society's Relay for Life in SecondLife completes this weekend, July 17-18, with 24 hrs of nonstop action on 41 sims. (see the links below) Builders and teams from around the world are working around the clock to get ready for this weekend and we surfers are no exception! The surf community will have a presence with our own build where visitors can pick up landmarks to surf sims, ride loaner boards on the Cortes wave, shop at our vendors, check out SL Surf history through pictures, attend the Midnight Mini Surf Comp and chow down on tasty hotdogs!
Opening Ceremonies are at 10am sl time with Survivor and Caregiver hours at 11am and noon sl time and we need your support! Bring your boards and lets cheer on the walkers! Luminarias will be scattered around the track so while you are traveling around and taking in the amazing builds you will see along the way, drop a few $L into one and dedicate to someone. Cancer touches us all in some way whether you are a survivor, a caregiver, or a loved one. Last year Relay for Life in SecondLife raised $275,000USD and this year we want to beat that with your help!
Until there is a cure we ride!
