That's exactly what we plan to do!  From June 15th to July 6!   Take Part in the Relay Research Challenge!

The  Goal of the challenge  is to raise enough donations to fund 3,600 hours of research. if we all work together. We CAN!

“Research is the way to find a cure,” said Relay For Life of Second Life 2017 Chair Nuala Maracas. “By raising one hour at a time, we can turn those single hours of research into a fully-funded grant. Won’t you join with me in this challenge? Together we can do it!”

Imagine your Relay fundraising going to support a new researcher. Just L$5,560 will pay for one hour of research time.

From June 15 through July 6, let’s put our efforts toward raising one hour of research at a time!
