DONATION FOR: RELAY FOR LIFE American Cancer Society
100% of the dollars raised in-world goes to the American Cancer Society… with the lions share going to fund research.
The American Cancer Society is one of only 2 charities officially ‘vetted’ by Linden Lab and all donations are directed by secure scripted kiosks and vendors to the Society’s own Avatars and Accounts.
Relay For Life is the signature fund-raiser for the American Cancer Society. It is held in over 5600 communities and in more than 20 countries outside the US and since 2005 right here in Second Life!
Relay supports research and survivor caregiver programs of the American Cancer Society. In Second Life Relay For Life of Second Life was formed in 2005 and we are in on our 17th year!
The American Cancer Society is the Global Leader in the fight against cancer and supports programs and organizations on every continent and in the four corners of the globe.
Research is the key to the American Cancer Society’s efforts. 47 Nobel Prize winners have been supported by research grants from the American Cancer Society, grants supported by YOUR Relay For Life Donations.
Relay For Life of Second Life is the Largest virtual event in the world and in 2014 it raised over $415,000 US DOLLARS and was ranked 17th out of more than 5600 Relay events held world wide!

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest peer-to-peer fund-raising event to save lives from cancer. At Relay For Life events, participants celebrate people who have been touched by cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action for lifesaving change
Funds raised help the American Cancer Society attack cancer in dozens of ways, each of them critical to achieving a world without cancer – from developing breakthrough therapies to building supportive communities, from providing empowering resources to deploying activists to raise awareness.
The Society currently funds nearly half a billion dollars in research grants. Other funds go to maintaining patient services and to helping our global partners around the world. Some of it even comes back to Second Life, where the American Cancer Society region, is THE Official ‘virtual office’ of the Society, offering residents support, information and other resources to aid them in fighting and avoiding cancer.
The American Cancer Society Road To Recovery® program provides free rides to cancer patients to and from treatments and cancer-related appointments.
The American Cancer Society Reach To Recovery® program matches trained volunteer breast cancer survivors to people facing or living with breast cancer.
Patient navigators can help: find transportation to and from cancer-related appointments; assist with medical financial issues, including insurance navigation; identify community resources; and provide information on your cancer diagnosis and treatment process.
Take action for lifesaving change & welcome to HopeFest 2022 in support of the American Cancer Society and the fight against cancer!
