The Australian Esports League (AEL) is proud to announce we are partnering with Game on CancerⓇ on a series of esports leagues for high schools, universities and corporate partners to support vital cancer research. 

Over the past three years, the Game On CancerⓇ community has raised more than $745,000 through campaigns like Superhero Streamers, PAX Australia and Holiday Spectacular to support the early-career cancer researchers that Cure Cancer funds. By joining forces the AEL will be engaging the passionate grassroots esports community to contribute to Cure Cancer’s vision of making this the last generation to die from cancer. 

“The strength of this partnership is not just the coming together of two great communities, but the vision and commitment of the individuals behind it to promote funding cancer research,” says Darren Kwan, CEO of AEL.

“We are proud to be partnering with AEL to increase engagement in schools, universities, and workplaces,” says Nikki Kinloch, CEO of Cure Cancer. “The partnership will focus on leveraging the power of the gaming community to raise awareness and funds for cancer research. We believe esports has the potential to make a real difference in the world, and we’re excited to be a part of this initiative.”  

Here’s our ask to the community: For every student who signs up to join the High School in 2023, the AEL will be donating $2 to Cure Cancer. That’s right, just by playing games and having fun, you can make a real impact in the fight against cancer! 

Not only will you be doing your part to support cancer research, but you’ll also be joining a community of like-minded gamers who share your passion for esports. It’s a win-win situation, folks! 

So what are you waiting for? Register now, team up with your friends, and let’s show the world that gamers can make a difference! Let’s play our way to a cancer-free future! 

The AEL team are also planning more ways we can support the cause, so be sure to stay tuned to our social channels for more information on future leagues or events you can be a part of as well.
