Game On for Brain Tumour Research
Are You Ready? Let’s Play!
Calling all gamers: do you want to turn your gaming sessions into brilliant fundraising events to help find a cure for brain tumours?
It’s never been easier to organise and take part in a ‘gaming for good’ event. We’re keen to work with anyone with a passion for gaming who’d also like to offer hope to the tens of thousands of people impacted by this devastating disease.
Together we can harness the power of game-play fundraising to accelerate our vital research and support our tireless campaigning to influence greater national investment.
How to Game On for Brain Tumour Research
Follow these simple steps to get involved and fundraise for us through your gaming:
1. Choose Your Challenge
- Take on a personal challenge or connect with your loved ones through a virtual multiplayer marathon or tournament
- Speed run – pick a game or level you think will be an exciting and fun challenge to complete as quickly as you can
- Full game – play for as long as it takes to complete
Choose a date for your Game On challenge and you could even live stream it!
2. Create Your Fundraising Page
Once you've registered, set up your Game On JustGiving page. JustGiving is the leading online fundraising service – it’s really easy to use and is well-configured to host gaming for charity. There are plenty of tips on how to connect your gaming stream on Twitch (for example) to your JustGiving page.
Add your fundraising target on the page and lay out your reasons for supporting Brain Tumour Research – personal stories will always inspire more donations.
3. Spread the Word
Share your challenge with friends, family and everyone in your community – on social media, via email, text message, word of mouth etc – and build that buzz for your Game On event. We may be able to help you share your story in the media, on our website and on our social channels too.
4. Game On Day
Start your gaming challenge! Post real-time updates on Twitch and Twitter (or your preferred social media platform) during the game including your fundraising page link, use the hashtags #GameOn #BrainTumourResearch. If you’re playing with others, ask them to do the same - it’ll add to the event atmosphere and drive those donations!
Please note: extended use of Virtual Reality (VR) headsets in gaming may cause eye strain. Anyone prone to epilepsy should be mindful that lighting effects in some games played whilst using VR headsets may trigger seizures.
