Making Strides of Second Life

Ertina Loopen Memorial Foundation

The Ertina Loopen Memorial Foundation supports the American Cancer Society in tribute to Ertina Loopen, a resident of Second Life from 2010 until 2020 when she passed away in the physical world due to the chemotherapy that was used to treat her single, small breast cancer lump that never grew nor spread after it was first discovered only six months earlier.

In Second Life, Tina was a supporter of and volunteer for the American Cancer Society through Relay For Live activities and events. Her efforts in Second Life impacted the lives of people both in Second Life and the physical world. 

By day, she was an elementary school teacher who served her local community for over thirty years by working hard to educate and improve the lives of her students. Many do not know, however, that in the last seven years of her life, she would return home after work each day to connect with and improve the lives of others in locations around the world by working with various groups and organizations in Second Life. Late into the evenings, she generously volunteered her personal time and effort in her own quiet way to help raise tens of thousands of dollars each year for cancer research, education and services for people who would never know her. 

She was an incredibly humble, sincere and thoughtful person who had a big heart that will be greatly missed--not only by her closest friends and family members, but also by countless others who could have benefited from the selfless contributions she made every day to help make the world a better place.

Now in her absence, the Ertina Loopen Memorial Foundation carries on her efforts to help raise awareness and support for the American Cancer Society through Making Strides and other ACS events that help benefit caregivers and survivors, as well as to pay tribute to all of those who we lost along the way. 

Please donate or join us today, because Making Strides is an amazing way to have some fun and end breast cancer together!

Welcome to our Team Page. We've formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.

There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It's providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

How We Support the American Cancer Society

Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.

Join us. Donate today. Or walk with us.
