Relay Event Day Getting Started Guide

During the Relay, we walk the track to honor those who have lost the fight, to celebrate with our survivors and to applaud the caregivers and heroes who work tirelessly to make a difference. Until there is a cure, we will continue to fight!

Relay Activities

When not on the track, come enjoy the exciting Relay festivities in Second Life. They feature three Music Stages, a Scavenger Hunt, Team Parties, the Teams R Us Flea Market, the Snail Races, an Art Show and Silent Auction, a Raffle, a Museum, a Breedables Auction, the Survivor/Caregiver Camp, water activities, team campsites and celebrated builds by some of SL's finest designers, the Committee Camp, the RFL Telethon and the T1Radio stream.

Getting Started - Visit the Welcome Center

Relay begins with the Opening Ceremonies at 10 AM SLT and the inspirational Survivor/Caregiver Honor Walk at 11 AM.  Tune into T1Radio's stream at or listen to the audio in Second Life for festive music, inspirational testimonials and the Relay news.

Click the Luminaria sign at the Welcome Center for a reference to the colors of the Luminari. Light one in remembrance and receive a keepsake luminary!  (use the others first)

Walking or cheering from the campsites along the Relay track is an amazing feeling as the sights and sounds that flood our senses remind us that we are not alone. We stand strong together with each step that we take, and when not on the track, we will cheer, dance and support the fight against cancer from one of the beautifully designed campsites along the route.

At the Relay For Life of Second Life, there is something for everyone!

Themed Laps
