Raise Awareness!

October is fast approaching and our time to shine the spotlight on breast cancer. All are welcome to use these poster to decorate your venues and raise awareness.

To grab your set of textures (these and several more), stop by the Event room at the Strides building on the American Cancer Society campus and look for the giver on the back wall of the room.

P.S. For those looking for Making Strides fundraising tools, updated tools will be released soon – watch for notices!

 

Signups are open for Walk-a-thon

The 5th Annual Strides Walk-a-thon is open for signups.

What is a walk-a-thon?

Walk-a-thon – an event where people volunteer to walk a track, path, or distance for a set amount a time. For every completed lap, mile, or round of the walk that they complete, their sponsors donate an amount of money to a cause or reason the walker is supporting.

Sponsor – a person who makes a donation to the cause or reason based on the performance of the walker. A sponsor can be a friend, family, business or any individual willing to support the walker and the cause.

In this case, walkers are walking to raise awareness and funds in the fight against Breast Cancer. All the donations made to the walkers will go directly to the American Cancer Society Strides program.

Every breast cancer walk and event is an incredible and inspiring opportunity to honor those who have battled breast cancer, raise awareness about what we can do to reduce our breast cancer risk, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with research, information, services, and access to mammograms for women who need them. The American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight to end breast cancer.

Sign up to be a walker and start right away finding your sponsors. Once you have signed up to walk at the October 19th event you will pass a walkers folder with helpful information to get you going and set up. Everyone is welcome to walk. Buddy up and walk with a friend or two! As the poster says, “We all leave footprints, Make Yours Count!!!” in the fight against Breast Cancer.

Out Shop Cancer Registration Extended!

Due to the tremendous response for the 2019 Out Shop Cancer grid-wide shopping event merchant registration has been extended because we want any & all who wish to join the fight to do so!!!

This event is like no other – we are attacking breast cancer from every angle, across communities in SL and creating a shopping experience with something for everyone!!
If you would like to join us, register today!!

The Out Shop Cancer event will run from October 1- October 31, 2019.

This shopping event will take place across the grid with shoppers coming to your business rather than to an event region. Our goal is to help build your brand awareness through your support of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Second Life.

Additionally, for the 2019 season we have Out Shop Cancer: Marketplace for designers who do not have inworld locations but would like to partner with us in the fight against breast cancer.

For inworld stores – each participating designer will set out at least one 100% vendor and/or gacha with proceeds going to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Second Life.  Merchant can then use as many additional 100% vendors or 50% vendors as they choose.

Marketplace stores will be able to designate an item (or items) on their site as benefiting Making Strides and includes the options for splitting the amounts.

There will be a Stores guide of the participating stores on the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Second Life website, social media and via notecard in-world.
