The events committee are looking at the possibility of entering a team into the 2010 relay for life... We really need volunteers to join the team.. The biggest thing that you will have to commit to doing is walking at least one lap of the relay for life track on Saturday 17th/Sunday 18th July, given that each lap takes between 1 and 2 hours to complete would be good if we can get enough for one lap each... If you are interested in helping out and joining the team please let me know by IM asap so that we can register the team etc
thanks
Vivy x

I already IM'ed you Viv, but I wanted to post my thoughts here!

At some point in our lives we will all be touched by cancer...personally I have lost both a cousin (breast cancer) and my greatest influence, my great grandmother, (pancreatic cancer) and am very passionate about this.

It's not going to take much (a few hours out of your life isn't a lot), and any spare lindens aren't a lot either.

If you haven't IM'ed Viv yet, do it!! Do it now!!!

FOR those of you that have no idea what relay for life is about or what happens this is a bit more information for you...
WISHING ON A CURE!!

What is Relay For Life of Second Life?

Relay For Life is the signature event of the American Cancer Society and has been active, and continually growing in Second Life for 5 years. In 2005, the first Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL) was attended by a few hundred avatars and raised almost $5,000 US dollars for the American Cancer Society. In 2007, RFL of SL raised more than $118,000 US dollars. In 2009 the Relay For Life of Second Life raised over $250,000.00 US dollars and was attended by thousands of avatars. The 2010 Relay For Life of Second Life will begin with the March 13th, 2010 Kick-Off and culminate the weekend of July 17th and 18th, 2010. Relay Weekend is a fun-filled, overnight event that unites SL individuals throughout the world to celebrate survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer), remember loved ones and raise money for the fight against cancer.

“Individuals who are willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event, as a volunteer or participant, have made a commitment to fight back against this disease and let the community know that you can beat cancer.”

Relay For Life Teams form in February and early March, and we begin with the 2010 Kick Off Party on March 13th. Teams continue to fundraise from March through July by holding events. The Relay For Life of Second Life finishes with the official overnight Relay on July 17th & 18th, 2010. During that weekend, team members gather at their Team Campsites, walk the Relay Track, enjoy live music, participate in fun events, and explore the many Relay Sims as the event runs overnight and into the next morning. In 2009, over 120 RFL of SL Teams participated in the largest virtual fundraising walk in the world and this year the number will be even higher.

The Relay For Life of Second Life has the ability to virtually bring together friends, families, businesses, and support organizations from all over the world, all with the goal of raising money and awareness in the fight against cancer!

Fighting cancer is a team effort. The strength of people coming together for a common cause is greater than the strength of one. Teams are the spirit of Relay For Life of Second Life!

Sign me up to, cancer has been in my life twice. First when I was quite young my Mother got Breast Cancer. Thankfully she managed to pull through, I'll never forget the day I came into the front room and saw my Mother with a long brown wig on, I had no idea about cemo (sp) back then so I though it was magic heh. Second time was quite recently, only about 6 or 7 months ago, when the doctors thought she got it again. I can tell you, hearing those words for the second time is the worst thing that's ever happened to me. Thankfully again, it turned out not to be the case. So yes, sign me up for anything I can do to help.
