This success is due to the tireless efforts of the wonderful RFL of SL volunteers, the dedicated residents of Second Life, support from our RFL of SL sponsors, support from Linden Lab and the inspiration provided by our cancer survivors and caregivers. All of you worked hard to make this accomplishment possible. Congratulations for achieving this amazing feat!

RFL Co-Chair Dwen Dooley praised the volunteers and said, “Over the years, I have learned so much from the diversity of our volunteers and I appreciate the resilient spirit and dedication to growth that our Team Captains, Team Members and Committee Members possess. We celebrate these amazing achievements because we are proud of our ability to make such a meaningful impact on the fight against cancer in the most unique way. The Relay For Life of Second Life is truly special because every year, we continue to raise our standards of excellence, and continue to break records, and continue to reach new milestones in fundraising…which allows us to support the cancer patients and cancer survivors who are our fellow residents of Second Life.”

We all make a difference in the fight against cancer when we work together and pool our efforts with other Relay For Life teams worldwide. Every effort, whether large or small, is important in the fight for a brighter tomorrow and gives us hope for advances in cancer research, prevention and treatment.

Our cancer survivors and caregivers inspire us with their courage and remind us that cancer threatens everyone. We fight to survive today, and one day, we hope to see a world without the fear of cancer threatening our children.

The commitment of our volunteers in Second Life reaches well beyond the boundaries of the virtual world to touch the lives of people globally. Our cultural differences are celebrated under this banner and our shared commitment is the foundation that strengthens this extended family that we hold so dear.
