Cancer is an equal opportunity disease, it does not discriminate – it takes people from all walks of life, skin colours, and ages – you yourself may have been touched by it, even if only indirectly. The best and brightest scientific minds are finding new ways to beat this disease all the time, and there is real hope for a cure. It is definitely Time for a Cure.
That’s the theme for the 2012 Relay for Life of Second Life, an annual fundraiser for the American Cancer Society that kicked off in March and ends in mid-July, with a variety of events and activities. This is one of those times when Second Life shines, with people from all across the grid coming together, and raising an impressive total of 375,000 US dollars in 2011. Wouldn’t it be great to top that this year?
The =IcaruS= Metaverse HQ is in Magna Carta, Avalon Town, so we joined up with the Knights of Avalon team last year; we had such fun, we’re with them again this year. When you stop by for a visit, please drop a few lindens into the donation kiosk at our main entrance to show your support. Have a look at the Halfway to Halloween event coming up the 28th of April, and visit the Avalon Events page often to see what other fun things they’ve cooked up for the RFLSL cause, as well as other events of interest. You’re always welcome to visit as well!
