2018 Out Shop Cancer Shopping Event

For the 2018 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Second Life season we are going to “Out Shop Cancer” by taking the shopping event out across the Second Life grid!

For the 2018 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Second Life season we want to highlight all of the wonderful designers and creators who bring so much support to our campaigns each year.

In an effort to do this, we have created the Out Shop Cancer Shopping Event! This will be a grid-wide shopping event taking you directly to the designers’ main stores. The Out Shop Cancer Shopping Event will run from October 1-31, 2018. There will be a shopping hud available on October 1, 2018 throughout the month of October. There will also be SLurls and a shopping guide available here on the Making Strides website as well as on social media sites.

If you are a designer/ merchant and you would like to participate in the Out Shop Cancer Shopping Event, registrations are now open! Please follow this link for more information and how to register.

2018 Strides Parade of Homes in Second Life

We are please to invite you to a new and special event taking place in Second Life during the month of October.  We are holding “2018 Strides Parade of Homes in SL”. This will be an event were Second Life builders, interior designers, and home & garden creators can show off their incredible talent while helping the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign in Second Life.

We are taking a new and we believe fresh approach to the classic “Fair” events in SL.  In classic fair events you would be ask to purchase a booth or sponsorship to participate and then agree to use “x” number of vendors for the cause, along with asking to provide one or two additional items for the event.  At this point, you would create a satellite store for the event. We would like to bring the “Fair” to you! Curious? Click on this link to learn all about it and to see how you can sign up.

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!
