The Relay For Life has returned to Sec­ond Life for a fifth con­sec­u­tive year, and it’s the largest con­tigu­ous event Sec­ond Life has ever seen. We hope you will join us there.This year’s tar­get is $250,000 US, and your dona­tion can help push it past that goal.

Today on Radio Riel, Elrik Mer­lin presents a pro­gramme of uplift­ing music of all gen­res that we hope will tru­ly “raise you up”. The theme for RfL in SL this year is “One World, One Hope”. Please tune in, and don’t hes­i­tate to make a con­tri­bu­tion to help con­quer this dis­ease. To get start­ed, just click here.

Then, at 10am SLT, to coin­cide with the For­mal Dress lap at RfL, Design­ing Worlds, the week­ly show on design and design­ers, is hav­ing a ball­room-style dance in for­mal dress at the Treet TV stu­dios at RFL One Hope, http://slurl.com/secondlife/RFL%20One%20Hope/197/97/26.

Join Elrik Mer­lin and the team from Treet and Design­ing Worlds for a waltz, a fox­trot and more and help raise mon­ey for RfL and the Amer­i­can Can­cer Soci­ety! Wear your best gown or tux.

While you’re there, don’t hes­i­tate to wan­der the 37 regions and see the tru­ly tremen­dous builds that are just here for two days!

Music will be on Radio Riel’s Main Stream.

The Amer­i­can Can­cer Soci­ety Relay For Life began in May 1985 when a col­orec­tal sur­geon ran around a track in Taco­ma, Wash­ing­ton, for 24 hours, rais­ing $27,000 to sup­port the Amer­i­can Can­cer Soci­ety. Today Relay For Life is held in more than 4,600 com­mu­ni­ties in the Unit­ed States and in 23 coun­tries across the globe. To date, Relay For Life has raised more than $1.5 bil­lion to help the Soci­ety accel­er­ate the progress against can­cer by sav­ing lives, help­ing those touched by can­cer, and empow­er­ing peo­ple to fight back against this dis­ease.
