Cyber Legacy to host a charity tournament to help children with cancer
On October 12 and 13, a charity FORTNITE tournament will be held in Russia. Professional players from the Cyber Legacy club will participate, as will bloggers and streamers. The tournament will be held online on CL content-maker “Hurma”’s channel: twitch.tv/hurma. The goal of the tournament is to attract the eSports’ community’s attention to the importance of charity events.
Both days, there will be a daily 7:30pm competition broadcast on “Hurma”’s Twitch-channel, with spectators able to not only watch the cyber athletes' games, but also to have a chance to help children diagnosed with cancer by donating any amount. CL content-maker Dmitriy “Hurma” Geynts, an eSport analyst and invited bloggers will cover the event live from a specially-equipped studio.
The money raised during the tournament will go towards acquiring brain shunts for emergency surgery during a child's proton therapy, and for other necessities for the treatment of cancer.
“For Cyber Legacy, organizing this kind of event is about making a contribution to the development of the social component of society. We are not indifferent to people’s fate. Using all available means, we are ready to educate our audience on the opportunity to help people who have found themselves in a difficult life situation," said Cyber Legacy CEO Vladislav Grechkin, commenting the forthcoming tournament.
In preparation for the charity tournament, Cyber Legacy’s cyber athletes visited the MIBS Proton Therapy Center. On September 15, Dmitriy “Hurma” Geynts, Aleksandr “Fury Legendary” Svistunov and Daniil “Putrick” Abdrakhmanov held an unforgettable event for the young patients at the Center. They were also interested in seeing and had the chance to see the Center’s premises and the modern medical equipment there.
The charity tournament is organized by the Cyber Legacy eSports team and The Sergei Berezin Charitable Foundation for Cancer Patients, supported by the “Guide Store” online Fortnite learning platform, international investment company Freedom International Group, health and beauty brand Project V and ginseng food brand COFFEECELL.
