Help with cancer awareness by playing games this weekend

2 min read

Cancer has affected pretty much everyone I know in one form or another and the disease is terrifying simply because it doesn’t seem to care who it affects. Young and old, healthy people and people who smoke a pack a day seem to be equally at risk.

There are a few people in the gaming industry currently who are suffering with the horrifying effects of cancer and while the unfortunate truth is that there really is nothing that the large majority of us can do to help stop it.

However this weekend we can do a little bit to raise funds and awareness for Cancer by doing what we love best, playing games.

This weekend Next weekend Emperors Palace will play host to the 7th national Gaming For Cancer event hosted by Liberty LAN.


Emperors Palace has given them a 800 seat location to host the LAN making it easily one of the biggest LAN’s in the country which is enough reason to rock up all on its own.

However to make the event even more interesting SteelSeries and ASUS have teamed up with them to run three different tournaments with prizes ranging from cold hard cash to headsets, mouse and towels.. yes towels.

The tournaments will cover DOTA 2, CS: GO and Call of Duty: Ghosts. The tournament will be run by the experienced team over at Do Gaming and will be headed by Robert Hart.

For full details check out the announcement on the DGL page and the original LibertyLan homepage.

But you are going to want to be quick as there are only 330 spaces left.
