Seasons of Hope: Relay for Life of Second Life 2011

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Saturday, 16 July, 2011

Today marks what is surely the biggest event in the year for the virtual world of Second Life — it’s Relay For Life of Second Life 2011. For several months, groups in-world have been raising money for the American Cancer Society and other associated organisations across the world, with fundraisers, dances, and events of all kinds. At the time of writing, RFL of SL has this year alone raised almost $325,000US (and over $1,000,000 since its inception in 2005), with organisations all over the Grid contributing and working hard to raise more.

The event itself is a 24-hour relay around a special track surrounded by astonishing builds on many different themes. It starts today at 10am SLT with the opening ceremony and ends a full day later.

Find out more about the events happening today here, or you can watch the special television coverage on the RFL Telethon channel. If you can, come down and join in — and please make a donation if you possibly can.

Today’s programme provides uplifting and moving music to support the Relay effort. Enjoy — and join in if you can.

And don’t forget to join us for the ZBS Radio Hour at 7pm and 3am UK time (11am and 7pm Pacific) when we come to the end of Jack Flanders’s Dreams of Sumatra, and rthe special two-part Ruby adventure, The Tookah’s Tales.

Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin and produced by Radio Riel in conjunction with our friends at the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen to the programme in-world now at, or simply click here to start your player, if your browser is configured to do so.
