RFL 2012: It’s time for a cure

With SL9B now behind us and July opening before us, Second Life moves towards the central event of the Relay For Life in SL season: the Relay weekend.

This year, the weekend will take place over the 14th and 15th of July, and will feature 36 regions of campsites and five regions set aside for events. As with previous years, the regions will feature the Relay Track, giving participants the opportunity to wall through the regions, seeing the wide diversity of campsites and builds, and donate to RFL SL.
