Get Ready to Shop!

It is time to make your shopping count with the Out Shop Cancer shopping event in support of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and the American Cancer Society.

From October 1 through October 31 you can make a difference in the fight against breast cancer by visiting the select businesses who have generously donated their time and talents in an effort to raise awareness and provide funds for research and programs which support breast cancer patients, survivors and caregivers.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancers. It is also the second-leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer.

2018 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Season is Here!

Welcome! We are happy to announce that the 2018 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Second Life season is here! Our official season will run October 1-31, 2018, but the new kiosks and vendors are available now at the Making Strides office located on the American Cancer Society region.

This year we are celebrating our 10th year of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Second Life and to mark this milestone we will be introducing some exciting new events as well as bringing back some old favorites!

The theme winner for the 2018 season is “The Rack Pack”. Bodies come in all shapes and sizes in both Second Life and Real Life so we want to highlight them all! There are many ways you can go with this theme- and guys you are included too! Breast cancer is not gender specific to just females! For the theme it can be old Hollywood to current styles, whatever gets your creative juices flowing.

Looking forward to painting the grid PINK with Blue this season with all of you!
