Cure Cancer challenges gaming streamers to help raise money for cancer research

Published on

From Tuesday 15th November through to Thursday 15th December, creators of all kinds can sign up and help support early-career cancer researchers across Australia working to find a cure for all different 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. This year, renowned Australian audio producer RØDE and local neon light manufacturer Kings of Neon™ are supporting the campaign with their own amazing incentives.

The first 25 fundraisers to raise $2000 will receive a $300 Kings of Neon™ gift card to purchase their own custom neon light for their streaming setup*

The first 25 fundraisers to raise $4000 will receive a RØDE X Prize Pack valued at $1,146, which includes brand new products such as:

  • XDM-100 microphone
  • XCM-50 microphone
  • NTH-100 headphones
  • PSA1+ desk arm
  • Over the 30 days, some of Australia’s favourite creators will be jumping-in to fundraise themselves, including ex-Good Games host turned Twitch extraordinaire, Bajo, who will be kicking off the event with his own fundraising stream on November 15 th . This Holiday Spectacular, the aim is to raise $75,000 AUD which will help fund nine months of life-saving cancer research.

    To date, Cure Cancer's Game On Cancer® initiative has raised over $650,000 AUD for cancer research, which is enough to fund over six years of cancer research projects. Previous fundraisers have included some of Australia’s largest names in gaming like Loserfruit, IAmFallFromGrace, 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, revered Australian cooking creators, MissMollyMakes, 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.
