Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation has teamed up with Esports Tower to help fight childhood cancer. On Tuesday, June 30, beginning at 4 pm EDT, Esports Tower will live stream an online gaming tournament featuring students ages 13-19 playing Overwatch as they compete for the chance to win college scholarships. Information about ALSF will be included in the broadcast which will be streamed via twitch.
Esports Tower will also work in conjunction with ALSF’s new Esports gamers program benefiting kids with cancer. Supporters can make a difference in the lives of kids with cancer through this program by hosting esport fundraisers including 24-hour live streams, taking part in organized tournaments or playing rounds with friends. For every win, point or other stat, supports can accept pledges and donations to help childhood cancer heroes.
Esports Tower is the first esports program to develop players to be better gamers, better teammates and better recruits. They offer live coaching at custom facilities in Florida, Georgia and North Carolina twice weekly that encourages team building and leadership skills in addition to competing in exclusive live competitions.
“We are so grateful to be partnering with ALSF,” said David Adams, CEO. “This opportunity allows us to expose players to ALSF’s mission and instill the importance of charity which aligns with our goals.”
“We are thrilled to be working with Esports Tower to continue our mission through the esports gaming program,” said Liz Scott, co-executive director of ALSF and Alex’s mom. “What a perfect opportunity for our gaming program supporters that coincides beautifully with Esports Tower’s mission of teamwork, leadership and giving back.”
