Relay For Life of Second Life Raises Over $150k in First Hour!

Relay for Life of Second Life is a charity event that celebrates the victories and remembers those that have been lost in the fight against cancer. Th 4th annual RFLofSL relay takes place today in the popular virtual network Second Life. Reports have been coming through the pipelines to let us know that the event has already amassed a ton money and it’s only just begun!

It’s Only Just Begun

RFLofSL was a huge success last year, raking in over $100,000 dollars and attracting more than 1,700 participates in the virtual walkathon event. This year RFLofSL is looking to top themselves with their relay today. This year, the fundraising goal is $125,000. RFLofSL is also expecting to attract more than 2,000 participants.

Exceeding Expectations

So far, the event has raised over L$43,408,587 in Linden™ dollar donations, which is the currency used in Second Life. In American dollars, that’s over $180,000! They’ve also raised over $4500 in donations outside of Second Life in the first few hours of starting. There’s still more than 20 hours left on the clock and it looks like this event will exceed all expectations.

Get Involved

In the web relay,

The main difference is location. SL residents set up and decorate campsites, and sell small items to help raise Relay money just like at your local relay. However, since this is a virtual environment you may see some teams offering blimp rides, or holding sailboat races inside the park.
