 Many thanks to Linden Lab for their support and commitment to the Relay For Life of Second Life, and to the American Cancer Society (ACS) and our ACS Staff Partner, Stingray9798 Raymaker, for without their support, our successes would not be possible.

Stingray9798 Raymaker praised the Relay For Life of Second Life and said, "I am just as excited for this year's Relay For Life of Second Life as I ever have been.  Over the last few weeks, the momentum has been building to what will be an amazing crescendo and finale to an amazing fundraising season." 

He added, "I have been bragging about you all to my fellow American Cancer Society colleagues for the last several weeks, and will continue to sing your praises as long as people will listen to me!  Now - let's go have a Relay!!"
