Now that all the counting has been completed, we’re excited to say THANK YOU to everyone in Second Life who contributed to any and all of the 2021 Strides Campaigns. For the third year in a row, our ACS community has reached a new record in fundraising for the breast cancer mission of the American Cancer Society.
The 2021 Strides total stands strong at $43,227 (USD). This year, we saw the return of Out Shop Cancer, the Renaissance Festival, the Sci Fi Expo, and I Pink I Can. We also saw the addition of Spooky Strides along with countless campaigns that fed into the general Strides fund.
Totals for each of the named campaigns are:
SL Renaissance Festival: $12,691 I Pink I Can: $10,264 SciFi Expo: $8,172 Spooky Strides: $3,024 Out Shop Cancer: $2,533 Strides General Fund: $6,541
While we focus on breast cancer during the month of October, our Strides fundraising tools remain available and active throughout the year for any volunteer who wishes to support the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer research program. To get Strides tools or if you have an idea for a new campaign for 2022, please contact Stingray9798 Raymaker, MamaP Beerbaum, or Trager Alter.
