Game On Cancer® has teamed up with the Australian Esports League to support researchers across Australia!
We’re proud to announce that we’re partnering with the team at Australian Esports League (AEL) on a series of esports leagues for high schools, universities and corporate partners to support vital cancer research.
Over the past three years, the Game On CancerⓇ community has raised more than $745,000 through campaigns like Superhero Streamers, PAX Australia and Holiday Spectacular to support the early-career cancer researchers that Cure Cancer funds. By joining forces with AEL, we’ll be engaging the passionate grassroots esports community here locally, giving them an opportunity to contribute to our vision of making this the last generation to die from cancer.
“The strength of this partnership is not just the coming together of two great communities, but the vision and commitment of the individuals behind it to promote funding cancer research,” says Joe Gieringer, CEO of AEL.
“We are proud to be partnering with AEL to increase engagement in schools, universities, and workplaces,” says Nikki Kinloch, CEO of Cure Cancer. “The partnership will focus on leveraging the power of the gaming community to raise awareness and funds for cancer research. We believe esports has the potential to make a real difference in the world, and we’re excited to be a part of this initiative.”
