The Marching HAS begun

RFL BannerThings got started at 1 pm Eastern time with the opening ceremonies. As is usual in Second Life there was a dedicated radio station broadcasting into all the areas used in the RFL. There were stories of people dealing with cancer as well as reports of the various teams. The marching hadn’t begun  and will continue into Sunday  yet the Relay for Life of Second Life already has already gathered a quarter of a million US dollars.

Kick Off-2As you see there were quite few people at the opening ceremonies. There will even be events when I am sleeping. This is an international effort to fight cancer. This makes sense since SL residents are from all over the world.

This IS an Internation Fight Against Cancer

Since this is a march it seems appropriate to show a map of the march route.

The courseEach of those green dots is a person. Either a survivor, a care giver, or a person cheering on the marchers.  For technical reasons there are a lot more people doing the march than were at the opening ceremonies. When you try to fit too many people in one small area the computer server for that area slows down and may even crash if it is over loaded.

The first marcher were cancer survivors and care givers. ( I blanked their names out. )

Survivors-Edit

After that the many teams that helped raise he funds marched.

The Dancing CatThis was actually one of the fund raising groups that performed a dance routine for the early marchers. Only in SL are you going to get a cat that is part of a dance troop.

SL' s Relay for Life Also Has Families Supporting the  Cause

Some families even formed fun raising groups.

Cheer the Marchers

There were even some just people cheering the marchers on. Of course there were also those unique Second Life activities.

After a hard day pounding the pavement SL residents do know how to party.

SL People Also Know Party

( I wonder if he/she knows the dancing kitty. )

Remember there are more things going on Sunday and through the night. I’ll cover that after I get some sleep.
