Press Release: RFL Weekend Schedule

Themed laps are a way to add some fun and amusement to the long hours that we walk during Relay weekend. Whether it is wearing a silly hat, showing international pride or paying tribute to doctors, nurses, police, firemen or many others in this years Caring and Curing Lap, these themed laps are totally optional but fun to participate in or simply enjoy the efforts of those who do.

Feel free to interpret each theme with all the creative energy that embodies Second Life and in your own fun and festive way! We look forward to seeing you on the track!


11am - 12:30pm: CELEBRATE - Survivor/Caregiver Honor Walk - Survivors Are the "Spirit Of Relay" They Are the Promise Of Hope! Please Line the Track and Celebrate Our Heroes, Our Friends who have heard the words "You Have Cancer", as they walk the track in this opening lap.

The Caregivers are the Backbone of the Fight. They hold the hands, they care for and support their loved ones as they walk their cancer journey. As you stand at the side of the track, celebrating the survivors, cheer for their caregivers, too as we also support the ones who give so much to help our Survivors Fight Cancer! Cheer them all on as they walk by!!

12:30 - 2pm: Team Spirit Lap - Teams R Us! Wear your Team Shirts and wave those team banners and flags. Walk the track with pride for all you have done to help find a cure for cancer.

2 - 3pm: Silly Hats/Big Hair: Just like it says.. show us your silliest hat and/or craziest hair! (Fuzzball Ortega take note)

3 - 4pm: The First Timer Lap - As an homage to the new residents who have only recently joined Second Life and are taking part in their first Relay, lets celebrate first timers with the default Second Life offered avatars. Best thing is...everyone has those avatars in the Library folder. Open Inventory, scroll to the bottom, open the Library folder, then go into Clothing...and all the default sign up avatar folders are in there. Simply drag and drop the folder into your avatar and be a new resident for an hour! (PS: for extra effect, take off any AO's and use the default run/walk)
