Hi everyone! It's about that time again-- the Running of the Trolls event which debuted last year is back! Here are the details:
What: The Second Annual Running of the Trolls to benefit the Trevor Project
When: Saturday June 11th at 6:00pm server time
Where: Feathermoon server (US)
Who: Anyone! Roll up a level 1 troll (or if you already have one on Feathermoon, just join in) with any hair colour* and join is in a run from the troll starting area to Silvermoon City.
Why: This event is to benefit the Trevor Project, a nonprofit group that is focused on suicide prevention among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and other youth.
For more information, you can look at this thread on the Blizzard WRA forums.
I hope everyone will come run this year, or perhaps even make a donation!
* Hair colour: The lovely folks who started this event are also responsible for the Running of the Gnomes on Scarlet Crusade server, held every October-- this year will be seven years of raising money and awareness for breast cancer and benefiting the Cleveland Clinic and more research and support for the Tuohy vaccine, which in the early stages of testing. With the gnome run, it is encouraged you roll a gnome with pink hair, but for the Running of the Trolls event, any hair colour is fine.

Guilds for this event will be made by the hosts of the vent, so they can get a head count for those of us who are donating, so we won't be able to make an SU guild. We'll also get special tabards for this, provided by the race committee. I don't know any way we can stay together other than party up, which worked well for the Gnome run last October.
Anyhoo, shameless bump to see if more people will be joining!
Bumping to remind everyone that this is less than 2 weeks away! Please sign up here and on the calendar in-game so we can get a head count for planning/logistics. (Also, as tabards are being provided by the raci8ng guild we will join, we have decided that we will run in "party" (1 or more parties; raid won't work as you have to be at least level 10- IIRC-- to be in raid group) and we hope to have matching outfits-- ore on this to come.
Anyway, please sign up! Here and in-game calendar. Thanks!
Thank you and huge hugs to everyone who participated in the Running of the Trolls yesterday. I think we all felt a lot of shared love and support for an organisation and cause that has deep meaning to many of us. Our memories of the fun we had will be especially poignant as the world wakes to the horrific news of the shooting at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando Florida. The love & understanding of nearly 1000 cute trolls racing across Azeroth is beautiful and can overshadow the work of one monster. Again, thank you all and hug someone you love today! *hugsies*
