Join the fight to beat cancer and fundraise from National Superhero Day to help researchers find a cure for cancer
For the third year running, Cure Cancer’s Game On Cancer® initiative is assembling Superhero Streamers of all shapes and sizes to fundraise for life-saving cancer research.
From National Superhero Day on Thursday 28th April through to Wednesday 11th May, creators of all kinds can sign up and help support some ‘real-life superheroes’ – the amazing researchers that are working to find a cure for all types of cancer. All creators need to do is host a charity stream on their channels and then engage their audience to donate. Streamers can go to Tiltify to sign up and get involved and every dollar raised will support vital cancer research. Every fundraiser will also have the chance to become a Game On Cancer® MVP and earn exclusive merch to celebrate their fundraising efforts.
Over the two weeks, people can tune into livestreams from their favourite creators and donate to be in the running to win prizes from Game On Cancer’s partners. The aim is to raise $50,000 AUD which will help fund six months of life-saving cancer research.
To date, Cure Cancer’s Game On Cancer® initiative has raised over $410,000 AUD for cancer research, which is enough to fund over four years of research. Previous fundraisers have included some of Australia’s largest names in gaming like Loserfruit, Drewdog, PandaTV and Aussie Antics.
Cure Cancer is dedicated entirely to funding early career researchers and to date has provided over 540 research grants to young scientists with ground-breaking innovative ideas, many who have gone on to become leaders in cancer research globally.
Game On Cancer® is supported by many ambassadors across the gaming industry including hilarious, gaming community channel, Back Pocket and popular gaming personality and DLC podcast host Jeff Cannata.
Viewers can show their support by following Game On Cancer® on Twitter, joining them on Discord, tagging their favourite streamers that they would like to see involved and finally, and most importantly, watching a stream and donating.
So, gather your squad and get involved. You’ll be doing something you love and saving lives at the same time.
