Meet The Team – Madelyn Majestic

Madelyn Majestic

I’ve been part of the Relay Rockers team since 2006. I started relaying because a distant family member passed away from breast cancer, but I really didn’t experience what she had gone through. It became more personal the year that Trader had to undergo treatment, and I saw what he went through first hand. It was tough, and I was relieved when I found out he was going to be ok. During the survivor’s lap at relay that year, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when Trader approached the Rockers’ team site because it had been an emotional year, so I did both and also rode a dancing cow (for reasons). Since then, I’ve had many more Second Life and Relay friends face the fight against cancer and some very dear to me have been lost. Until there is a cure, I’ll be relaying for every person who has heard the words “You have cancer.”

Meet Our Team Member – Tazzie Tuque

Tazzie Tuque (aka TAZZ). I have been in SL for almost 14 years now, been DJing and making clothing for all that time, I find both to be a wonderful creative outlet for me to do something useful and enjoyable. I have been involved in RFL in SL for all that time as well, have been on many different teams, and have worked to help out independent of a team when not on a team. I relay because I want to do what I can where ever I can to help raise funds to eventually, hopefully, stop this horrid disease of cancer once and for all. As a retired RN I have cared for and seen first hand how devastating this disease is for both the victims and their families. If ever there was a “heart breaker” Cancer is it! And it has to be stopped. I also lost my Father to cancer 6 years ago and I helped with his care and watched him decline from a strong healthy man, to a bed ridden invalid in a matter of months.. I just want to do what i can, and I believe in RFL and am so glad I can do some small part through SL.   Meet the rest of the rockers here

2018 Relay Season Ends

What a great year for the Rockers. We did our thing that we always do to the tune of $7,762 US.  We Rocked The Relay!

Our year was laid back, stress free, and full of great team work. We all had input on the campsite build and it turned out fantastic!

The Relay Rockers were presented with the Gordy Klatt Award.

“”In memory of his pioneering spirit and steadfast dedication to Relay For Life, the Dr. Gordy Klatt award goes to an individual / team / group who has demonstrated the level of commitment and dedication to the cause…. who has put the big picture ahead of their own interest, and whose footpring and legacy will always be a part of the Relay For Life of Second Life story. “

This means more than any amount of money we have raised over the years.  It is never about being top in fundraising for us. Our team members know that. It  has always been about doing the best we can, giving all we can.  The Gordy Klatt Award recognizes that!  It recognizes the lasting impressions we have left on Relay For Life of Second Life over the years.  It recognizes all our team members!  This one is THE ONE that tops it all!

And we had a few more awards this year too!

Campsite Education Favorite Overall Award 1st

End Of An Era? 2018 Grayson Challenge – Mesh or Bald?

Its the Bid Me Bald 2018 Grayson Challenge.. with a twist!

Each Year Yasmine and Polaris Grayson, compete to shave the other bald, This year gonna be its different!

After 14 years on the grid, Polaris is the Last Surviving 2004 Noobie System Avatar on The Grid! He has agreed change to a MESH Body and Hair versus the hair of Yasamine Grayson, the loveliest 14yr old in Second Life.

The Graysons came to Second Life together, from There, on May 24, 2004. Since that time Polaris has worn only system clothes and hair. Yasamine thinks its time for him to adapt to a more contemporary avatar and is willing to put her long blonde locks on the line against him.

Here is your chance to take part in history in the making! Beginning May 27th there will be 2 Relay For Life kiosks, one labeled MESH the other BALD, placed at the pier in Arinultra Cay. Click for The Pier Vote for your choice and on June 10th @ 530pm we will total the Kiosks to see if we Bid Polaris MESH or Yasamine BALD.

“Its about time,” Yasamine stated. “I do look good bald, but Polaris really needs an update!” Polaris replied, “What about historic preservation? How else can we measure progress if we don’t preserve our relics?”

The choice is yours, its up to YOU!

Bid Polaris Mesh or Bid Yasamine Bald!
