Relay For Life 2009

This morning I got a chance to visit the 2009 Relay for Life build. This place is made of titanium Awesome. I wish I had more time to visit and take pictures but my RL day is already clamoring at the door, so I’m going to put up the post now and hope I get a chance to visit more — and get some more snaps — later.

One of the genres that I’m a huge fan of is Steampunk and Team Caledon steamed my creases with this glorious installation.

Then I headed down the road only to find a wonderful faerie woodland. It’s a gorgeous bit of building but if there was a team sign there, it didn’t rez for me while I was there.

On the other side of the wood, the New Babbage Team just amped up the steam-powered goodness with this installation featuring a zeppelin mooring station, a ferris wheel, and a steam powered globe. The globe tickled me because every good steampunker knows that the world is powered by steam and this was the perfect metaphor for that.

I’d love to show you more, but I’m out of time for today. Let me close with a plea for you – whoever you are and where ever you are reading this from — visit this place this weekend. Give if you can. There are lots of ways you can contribute any time during the July 18-19th weekend. Find an installation you admire and donate there.

You can also “buy” one of the luminaria that line the walkway. Any of the white ones are open. When you buy it, it turns color and your name will appear above it. This is a great way for everybody to own a piece of the cure. If we all give just a little bit, there’s enough of us to make a huge difference when we all contribute together.

The opening ceremony is set for noon SLT on July 18th and the official walk portion will run though noon on the 19th. There will be events all weekend long, and you’ve got plenty of time to get your avis down there to see, to help, and to just be part of this amazing effort. And if you can’t be there, all the official ceremonies will be broadcast live over the Official Relay For Life Radio Stream – T1Radio.

For more information about special events, background, and schedule, visit the site and grab the notecards from the various info givers available.

One World, One Hope.

Amen.
