The American Cancer Society is sponsoring a virtual Relay for Life in Second Life this weekend (July 27 – 28th).
This is the third annual event, and this year is being held in the new American Cancer Society headquarters in Second Life.
“The virtual “Relay for Life” began when volunteers in the Second Life community proposed a virtual event. In 2006, the event raised more than $41,000 and attracted more than 1,100 participants to a track that included real-world representations of New York City, Paris, Mexico, Sweden and South Africa. People can participate in the event by way of avatars, which are virtual representations of people in the real world. The avatars will gather in a virtual 512-acre park to donate money and walk on a custom-built track.”
