Around 2,500 people showed up for the event this year, organized to raise awareness of breast cancer (more info and donation info here). It turned out to be quite a spectacular march. You don’t really see so many people—and so many Chauffeured Chopper mounts—together in the game nowadays.

originally organized to raise awareness of breast cancer

just....... why? was anyone really more aware of breast cancer after something like this? this kind of thing is fun in MMOs, but do you really need a flimsy “awareness” reason to do it?
