PBTF Partners with Video Game Content Creators and NFL Stars for Game Changer Challenge Fundraising Event


The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF), the world’s leading nonprofit dedicated to children and teens with brain tumors, announces the Game Changer Challenge, a new virtual event running May 10-16, 2021 to support its PBTF GameON fundraising program. PBTF GameON gives livestreamers, game developers, and esports organizations the opportunity to raise awareness and funds for pediatric brain tumor research and family support.

The Game Changer Challenge will bring together members of the video game community as well as former NFL stars Bryant Young, Jonathan Stewart, Brenton Bersin, and professional esports team, Charlotte Phoenix to change the game for kids with cancer. PBTF is partnering with eSports organization Stay Plugged In to put together this event with the goal of raising $100,000 for pediatric brain tumor research and family support services.

“I’m proud to serve as the lead Ambassador for this event to support PBTF,” says Bryant Young. “My family and I know firsthand how important the PBTF’s mission is to support the 13 kids every single day that are diagnosed with a brain tumor. I can’t wait to participate in this event to support those kids.”

During the PBTF GameON launch event in September 2020 participants collectively raised over $80,000 for PBTF, smashing the original goal of $50,000. PBTF is hopeful the gaming community will come together again to reach the $100,000 goal for the Game Changer Challenge.
