PBTF GameON Unveils Livestream Schedule: Join us Sept. 25-Oct. 3 to #CancelKidsCancer
FUNDRAISING UPDATE (Sept. 29): PBTF GameON community, you’re amazing! In only 4 days you smashed our original goal of $50,000. Childhood brain cancer doesn’t stop, and neither do we so we’ve increased the goal to $60,000 $70,000. Are you up to the challenge?
The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s first-ever PBTF GameON fundraiser is happening Sept. 25-Oct. 3. Join us for this week-long event as more than 70 Facebook Gaming and Twitch streamers team up with a goal of raising $50,000 for kids with brain cancer.
On Friday, Sept. 25 starting at 1 p.m. ET, Facebook Gaming Partner and PBTF GameON ambassador Starbeast will kick off the launch event at www.facebook.com/StarbeastGG. Earlier this year, Starbeast and the GGFam community raised more than $6,200 for pediatric brain tumor research and family support. He returns to break his record on Sept. 25 with a fundraising goal of $10,000.
“At 21 years old, I underwent and overcame open brain surgery,” says Starbeast. “As the GGFam grows, I want to continue to give back and do bigger and better things for our world. I am inspired by the incredible strength and courage of the children the PBTF serves and am honored to raise awareness as a PBTF GameON global ambassador.”
PBTF GameON’s launch event will bring together members of the video game community and families impacted by a child's brain tumor diagnosis to livestream games and share their experiences. Every dollar raised helps PBTF fund research to cure the deadliest childhood cancer and equip families with the information, emotional support, and financial assistance they need.
Anyone interested in participating can sign up on the PBTF GameON Tiltify page. All launch event fundraisers will receive a bag of special “charity edition” beef jerky from PBTF GameON global ambassador and sponsor Empire Jerky. Participants who raise $250 or more will also earn PBTF’s exclusive “We Play to Win Vs. Cancer” T-shirt.
