We have a 2023 Relay Theme… We have a 2023 Season Logo… We have the dates…

The 2023 Relay For Life of Second Life theme is: HOPE FLOATS! - which aligns perfectly with the national Relay For Life theme of “Every Step Brings Hope.”

As our Relay community in the virtual world pursues our $500,000 USD (in a single year)...and as we close in on $5 Million USD, all-time…we celebrate how much HOPE our community has brought to so many people throughout Second Life and the world.

Cancer survivors and caregivers talk about how important it is to have hope. So many stories shared by our Relayers in Second Life include a moment where they had little reason to be positive, and the only thing they could hold on to was hope. That hope helped them through the toughest time, ultimately leading to a moment when things take a turn for the better.

Doubt will sink you. As long as there’s hope, you can float. Stingray Raymaker, Director of the American Cancer Society in Second Life views this year’s theme as an opportunity to rise above adversity, just as we always have. “Hope is the reason why our community has remained one of Second Life’s largest and most impactful since 2005. Hope floats above everything that we do. Hope guides our decisions. Hope inspires us to keep going, even when things feel impossible.”

We would like to thank everyone who submitted logo concepts over the last several weeks and we’re excited to unveil the final version of the 2023 Relay For Life of Second Life Theme Logo.

This logo will serve as our flagship symbol for our Relay For Life efforts in 2023. You can get a copy of both logos in the “logo section” of the Relay Building on the American Cancer Society Island in Second Life.

Mark your calendars

March 3rd thru March 12th 2023


I’m very excited to introduce the newly re-imagined SL Living Expo that expands the concept of home and garden to also include the way we live, work and play in Second Life.

This would include aviation, maritime, equestrian, farming, leisure activities, travel, food and so much more.

The SL Living Expo will focus on providing quality items from some of the very best content creators in Second Life, as well as creating a fun and interactive experience for its attendees.

A great BIG Relay thank you to Roxy & Cody Chronotis for stepping up to help launch this new event. The team of people working together on this project, along with Seraphim as a media partner, have set some very inspiring goals and have a vision for a completely re-imagined experience for the Second Life community. Much more information will follow in the coming days, but for now, we are just excited to welcome SL Living Expo to our Mega Event family, which includes Fantasy Faire, SL Christmas Expo and SL Fandom Con.

Visit their website, SL Living Expo for information on how to volunteer, connect to their social media and keep informed as more information becomes available.
