Seasons of Hope: Relay for Life of Second Life 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.
