Trager & MamaP kickoff their 4th year of telling the Relay For Life of Second Life story...

Our 2021 Relay theme, A Cure! For A Happy Ending!

is all about stories... and this is a story that needs to be heard...

In a year that had become a waiting room of suffocating uncertainty, hundreds and hundreds of caring people residing as avatars in a virtual world called Second Life stepped up for the American Cancer Society.

We thought it would be fun to put a call out to some of our Relay friends to help us with a very special video project. Something to show the solidarity of our virtual Relay community to the real world because WE ARE THE WORLD TOO.

With Relay for Life of Second Life you are never alone... there are so many wonderful people working together for our Relay... so many Relays across the country have been postponed due to COVID-19, but in Second Life we all get to keep going with our virtual Relay... we saw this cancer related video from Seattle Childrens Hospital set to the song Stronger by Kelly Clarkson and we thought it would be fun to use our "stay at home" time and create a Second Life version with some of our Relay friends... we had a lot of fun and we want to thank everyone who helped us... we are all going through some difficult times right now, but together we are stronger...

Relay Refresh is back for our 3rd year of telling the stories about our friends who Relay in Second Life. Relay 2020 registration opens January 15th and Relay 2020 Kickoff is February 15th. Our theme this year is Game On, Cancer - The Cure Starts Here.

We thought it would be fun to produce a video that could be used to help others understand the strength of the Relay community in Second Life and why we are all so committed to helping one another. We challenge you to watch this video and then CHOOSE to send this video to a friend along with an invitation to join us as we Relay For Life in a virtual world.
