|Time For A Cure - the logo for the RFL of SL 2012|
MamaP Beerbaum, the RFL of SL 2012 Event Chair, said: "The 2012 Relay For Life of Second Life Committee has been hard at work and we are ready to go!! The many volunteers who make up the committee have been planning for months to make sure the 2012 Relay is nothing short of amazing. Please join us as we get ready to Kick-Off our new season on March 10th! Until there is a cure, we Relay!"
In a few weeks, you will see the new logo rezzing across the grid alongside the familiar fundraising kiosks. This year’s theme is a Time For A Cure!

About Relay For Life of Second Life
Relay For Life® is the signature fundraiser of the American Cancer Society. Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL) is an annual activity that takes place in Second Life® in July each year. Volunteers form or join teams to have fun while fundraising and raising awareness from mid-March through mid-July. In July teams build campsites and walk a track, just like in a real world Relay. The main RFL of SL track event this year will take place on July 14-15. We will walk a virtual track for 24 hours, just like in a real world Relay For Life. Team members build and gather at their team campsites, enjoy live music, participate in fun events, and explore the many Relay sims and the incredible builds by some of Second Life’s top designers, as the event runs overnight and into the next morning.
