About Cure Rare Disease
Cure Rare Disease develops customized therapeutics for rare, genetic diseases. Their mission is toprovide therapeutics for individuals, primarily children, who are suffering from diseases for whichthere are no treatments or cures.
To increase awareness of its mission and fundraising capacity to develop customized therapeutics, CureRare Disease is hosting a charity fortnite tournament December 16th. Video games serve as anequalizer for people of all abilities, which is why CRD sees this event as a powerful opportunity toengage and unite both the gaming and rare disease communities. In September of 2020, CRD hosted itsfirst Charity Fortnite Tournament that raised over $15,000 and reached thousands across social media. This second event is the next step in CRD's mission to bring rare disease advocacy to the gaming space.
Fundraising: Through sponsorships and in-kind donations from businesses in the esports space, alongwith donations from tournament participants and viewers, CRD plans to raise $25,000.
Engagement: By marketing the event through Practice Server, the CRD Esports Advisory Board andother endemic partners' large network, it's estimated that 500 people will participate in the tournamentand 2,500 will watch the livestream.
The Practice Server has partnered up with Cure Rare Disease (CRD) and COX Elite Gamer to create a big event for the community. CRD’s mission is to provide therapeutics for individuals that suffer from diseases that have no treatments or cures.
To assist in promoting this mission, we are inviting everyone in the community to play our tournament — this includes casuals, opens, and professional players. Invitees and sign-ups will have a chance to be invited and featured on our main broadcast day and take a chance at winning the $20,000 cash prize.
We also plan to fundraise through sponsorships and donations in lead up to the event. The goal is to drive awareness and do good with our platform. As a community we look forward to seeing your support during tournament day.
