The party will take place at the auction house site: https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Xeen/96/92/3503

Tour the house, then place your bid! Entertainment will be provided by DJ Nuala Maracas of T1 Radio.

If you can not make the live auction event and would like to bid higher if outbid, contact Leala Spire-Marchant (leala spire) to arrange bid by proxy.

At the party, all bidding will be in posted in open chat and the starting bid will be the current highest silent bid. Highest Bidder at end of event will be asked to pay the Strides Kiosk to receive their home.

All proceeds collected during the Strides Parade of Homes in Second Life and the night of the Auction Party will go directly to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and the American Cancer Society.

But wait, there’s even more fun!

AXL-Pro, the builder of the auction house, has also contributed another home in a MSABC vendor: https://makingstridessecondlife.org/2018/10/25/bonus-home-to-buy-from-axl-pro/

Perfect for those wishing for a smaller home but not wanting to scrimp on luxury.

If you have any questions about the auction or MSABC please contact Leala Spire or Sandie Loxingly.

Each year, more than a million passionate women, men, and children participate in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation. The events unite communities by honoring those affected by the disease and raising money to reduce the burden of breast cancer.  Dollars raised through Making Strides Against Breast Cancer help the American Cancer Society fund innovative breast cancer research; provide education and guidance to help people reduce their risk; and offer comprehensive patient support to those who need it most so that no one facing breast cancer ever has to walk alone.

Ways to Help Wednesday

Road to Recovery

One of the biggest roadblocks to timely quality cancer treatment is the lack of transportation. Family and friends may help but over the course of several months,
they may not always have the time or resources to provide every ride. That’s why the American Cancer Society started the Road To Recovery® program. It is at the very heart of our work of removing barriers to quality health care by providing patients with transportation to treatment and other cancer-related appointments through volunteer drivers, partners, and community organizations.

If you are curious how you can get involved with this program, it’s easy to learn more.  Just click here…  https://www.cancer.org/involved/volunteer/road-to-recovery.html

As a cancer patient, are you wondering how you might be able to get a ride???

How does the program work?

Depending on your individual needs and what’s available in your area, we will:

  • Coordinate a ride with an American Cancer Society volunteer driver
  • Coordinate a ride with a local organization that has partnered with us to provide transportation
  • Refer you to a local resource you can contact for help

Am I eligible?

Patients must be traveling to a cancer-related medical appointment.

Other eligibility requirements may apply. For example, a caregiver may need to accompany a patient who cannot walk without help or is under age 18. Contact us to find out what is available in your area, and what the specific requirements are.

It can take several business days to coordinate your ride, so please call us at 1-800-227-2345 well in advance of your appointment date.

 

 

How your Mission Works for you..

How does the Reach To Recovery® program support people facing breast cancer?

For more than 45 years, the American Cancer Society Reach To Recovery program has been helping people cope with their breast cancer experience – as early as the first possibility of a diagnosis and continuing for as long as breast cancer remains a personal concern to them.

Sandie and Leala hit the hud recently and then had fun sharing their finds in photos.  They are posted on the Strides Flickr page and I’m sure there will be more to come from other members of the committee, but here is a sneak peek.  Go to our Flickr page to find out all the details on the outfits.
