RFL of SL Announces Media Partners Program

Relay For Life of Second Life announces a new sponsorship

Relay For Life of Second Life Steering Committee is proud to announce an exciting new sponsorship for this year. The committee has invited radio stations in Second Life to team up as Media Partners.

They will be able to set a fundraising pledge and help raise funds for cancer research. In return, each Media Partner will have a site along Media Row at Relay Weekend, be able to advertise on the Relay sims, have 1 hour of broadcast time during the 2014 Relay and much more!

“This is a great opportunity for radio stations in Second Life to partner with the largest fundraiser in the virtual worlds,” said Relay Co-Chair Random Darrow. “Not only will they be able to get their names out to thousands of people during Relay weekend, they also will get the recognition of helping raise funds that will be sent directly to the American Cancer Society.”

For more information about the Media Partner sponsorship, contact Random Darrow or PR/Outreach Chair Serina Juran.

Relay For Life of Second Life is an annual activity that takes place in Second Life in July each year. Volunteers form or join teams to have fun while fundraising and raising awareness from March through mid-July. In July, teams build campsites and walk a track, just like in a real world Relay.  Over the last nine years, Relay For Life of Second Life has raised more than $2 million for cancer research and is the largest charity event in the virtual worlds. Several thousand volunteers from more than 80 countries participate each year, truly making it a global event.
