Okay, so Big Bear Butt Blogger’s guild (Sidhe Devils) hosted a cancer awareness walk in honor of Julie, a guild member of theirs who was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. The donations to their cause raised over $1600! Somewhere between 100 and 200 people came out to celebrate. A group started in the horde area, another in the alliance area – and then we met up in the Barrens and finished the walk out to STV in Booty Bay.
A handful of the walk members were people who had lost friends/relatives to cancer, who were very happy to have others come and support the cause.
This walk demonstrated one of the things I like most about the game: A sense of community, where people can come together and do something good. It’s not just about war & loot & defeating bosses. It’s about being part of something bigger than yourself and caring about other humans/orcs/tauren/elves – putting our differences aside and being part of a really great community.
Here are some pictures from the event.
