At 3:00 pm Eastern Tuesday, fans of the Buffalo Bills can watch Levi Wallace and teammates play Fortnite. While you may be asking yourself “Why?” there are many good reasons. Wallace has teamed up with the American Cancer Society to raise money as a part of #GivingTuesday. Wallace will be joined by Jordan Poyer and Jaquan Johnson in today’s five-hour event that will be hosted on Twitch.
Wallace’s event is part of a larger “Gamers Vs. Cancer” event. Streaming video games has increasingly become a modern version of the telethon events some of us older fans recall. Fans can watch the fun at the dedicated Twitch page found right here. During the stream there will be options to donate money that will benefit the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network.
Beyond the joy of doing good deeds, joining the live session will allow you a glimpse of some fan favorites interacting in a casual environment with the possibility of fan engagement.
Wallace’s advocacy unfortunately, like so many of us, comes from a personal place, as Wallace shared in an interview with Maddy Glab.
“I lost my aunt my freshman year of high school to breast cancer,” said Wallace. “I also lost my granddad before I was one to prostate cancer. It’s always been a big thing for me to be involved with cancer, as well as ALS with my dad.”
If you’re a fan of the Bills, Fortnite, or just looking to try out something new, you’re encouraged to join the virtual event from 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm Eastern today.
