RFL of IW :: Volunteer Contributions

Everyone in Relay For Life, "Relays" for their own reasons. We want to know "Why do YOU Relay?"

Record a "Why I Relay" Testimonial

Create a testimonial recording and share your reason and inspiration for fundraising and participating in the Relay For Life of InWorldz. Your testimonial has the power to inspire and move fundraisers and cancer survivors and contribute to our goal in support of The American Cancer Society.

Instructions:

  • The ideal target length is 20 to 30 seconds, to under 60 seconds
  • PLEASE leave 2-3 seconds of silence at the start and 2-3 seconds of silence at the ending of the recording

Some hints to Improve Recording Quality

  • Try to do it in a quiet environment, its hard to edit out barking dogs, crying kids and begging spouses!
  • Use a headset & Mic if possible
  • Try NOT to Breathe into mic - Keep it just even with lower lip. Cover with a foam ball or Cotton Puff.
  • Turn off SL Sounds and Music
  • Rehearse your words
  • Emotions are fine. We Encourage them. For Many, Relay For Life is an Emotional Experience. SHARE THAT!
