How it works
How much our gamers have rasied so far!
Level up your leisure time for a great cause. By taking on a gaming marathon for charity you can supercharge your passion for gaming, inspire fellow gamers and change lives in the process.
By fundraising with your streaming community, you’ll be helping young people get the vital support they need.

Cancer doesn’t just affect young people physically – it can have a huge impact on every other part of their life too. Our Youth Support Coordinators are there to help young people deal with that impact, and connect with others their age so they don’t feel alone.
