In case you haven’t been over to check out The Big Bear Butt’s post from today, I’ll post a little about this here myself.
One of our near and dear Devils, Julie, has been diagnosed with breast cancer, and is due to start treatment on November 9th. We’re hoping to show our love and support for Julie, and have put together Raid for the Cure, a cross-factional event taking places on the Kael’thas (US) server.
What is it? An event for both the Alliance and Horde, a cross-factional march to show support for someone going through a trying time and to encourage donations to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure charity, so that maybe someday events like this won’t ever have to take place. Pink Mageweave Shirts will be provided for walkers of both sides, and we’ll have some representatives from Sidhe Devils on hand to ensure the walk goes smoothly (i.e. security detail).
This is not a race, despite the pic above. It’s more about solidarity for a cause.
When and where is it? The event will be held on Saturday, November 14th, at 2PM Central Time (Kael’thas’s server time). Participants for the Alliance side will start in Shadowglen near Darnassus, participants for the Horde in Camp Narache in Mulgore. Members of Sidhe Devils will be available to both factions to hand out Pink Mageweave Shirts to those who’re showing up from other servers to participate.
How do I participate?
The most obvious way, of course, is the march. Both sides will work their way towards Crossroads, meet up and head for Ratchet, take the boat to Booty Bay, and boogie down with the pirates in a giant sea of pink shirt and dress-sporting toons. Afterwards there will be a drawing (offline) for…
… the raffle! In order to raise money for breast cancer research, we’re holding a raffle. Various prizes will be coming from the WoW community, with the grand prize being a guest spot on the “Sidhe Devils Gone Wild” podcast. If you want to enter the raffle, it’s simple enough: go to the Raid for the Cure website (set up by Sidhe Devils for donations, but administered by Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and make a donation using a valid email address. Afterwards, email a copy of your receipt to tigerlordgm AT yahoo DOT com with the words Raid for the Cure Raffle Entry in the subject line. That’s all it takes - you’ve donated to a fantastic cause, and entered yourself in the drawing for fantastic prizes. One entry per person, no minimum donation necessary. Even if you can’t make it to the march, we encourage you to donate to this great organization.
BBB has a lot more details on his blog, including exactly when and where people should meet up for the run.
See you there!
