Relay For Life --Big Relay Weekend!

Ok.. the big track and builds and RFL Relay Weekend is in full swing .. so you can walk or jog around and see it all.. this is always a fun culmination of the fund raising events.  Check it out here:

Official site with schedule of events and all the details:

I always enjoy seeing the builds alongside the trackway, the ongoing entertainment, the little luminaries that line the path (yes I always get a few and list the names of loved ones who have or had cancer or just leave a few blank in support of the cause) and get caught up in the spirit and camaraderie of the many people who attend and cheer on the runners or just hang out having fun with the RFL teams.  The is a great cause so go visit in support, give a little if you can, and just WOW to see all the amazing builds!  It's like a great explore area too if you like that.. don't miss out. I loved that a part of the lap was even under water for a little bit.  I also really enjoyed some of the camp members standing alongside the path in their build areas waving and cheering on the runners with flags, banners, huge kites, etc and calling out the names of the runners and things... very fun.  The whole area is shaped like a big 10 if you check the map.. just type in RFL if you are not on the sims and you can see the 10 for the 10th anniversary of RFL in SL.  There is still a lot going on, so check out the schedule and don't miss out.

rfl_007rfl_008rfl_004 Around the track you’ll see a constant amazing display of some of SL’s greatest talent.. the Relay For Life Team campsites. Our Relay teams have all come together to each build their own display at the side of the track and welcome you to stop in and visit. They’ve worked hard all season and are thrilled to receive guests at their site. Also alongside the track are fabulous builds constructed for our enjoyment by some of SL’s top builders. It is with honor we thank the following builders for the generous donation of their talent and time for us all to enjoy..."
