Stand Up 2 Cancer is a non-profit organization established to raise funds for cancer research and to help fund groundbreaking new treatment development. Inara Pey has written a very informative blog post about the organization and the event.
While the entertainment industry plans to help raise awareness and funds by hosting a prime time event, Second Life musicians, venues, and artists are planning an inworld festival of music and fundraising in support of Stand Up 2 Cancer.
SL Music Race for a Cure (an official Stand Up 2 Cancer fundraising team) kicks off today, and a full list of venues, performers and information is available at The Shore.
Enjoy some live music and dancing, and contribute to a great cause.
