  • Expansion: TBC Classic

Starting October 29th, many of the largest WoW Classic communities, realms, and streamers will be teaming up with the GameTheory Community and St. Jude PLAY LIVE to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

What started off in early-October as a charity initiative by Hounds of Tindalos on Myzrael-US quicky grew to become one of the largest player-coordinated charity events in WoW Classic history. Beginning October 29th and running to mid-November, there is no hard-structure or event schedule for Classic Against Cancer. They encourage guilds, communities, and streamers to host their own events and challenges to help join the cause!

So what is this exactly?

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is hosting St Jude PLAY LIVE 2021 which welcomes gaming and streaming communities from around the globe to raise money for St. Jude’s.

The GameTheory Community Challenge, hosted by MatPat of GameTheory (YouTube) is a fundraising initiative that partnered with PLAY LIVE 2021 to raise awareness and challenge members of the Theorist Community to host their own events and raise money.

Classic Against Cancer is a sub-campaign proudly participating in the GameTheory Community Challenge.

Malygøs, founder of the event, said “Our goal is to unite the entire WoW Classic community against a common enemy, under one battle-flag, and do something amazing…something never done before.”

About the Author

Pride

Classic WoW is my jam, with a passion for PvP. Most know me as Baranor, the ret paladin guy, but I'm secretly a druid main, don't tell anyone. In my free time I play Switch games, particularly JRPGs. Some day I'll be making my own games and I humbly hope you play those too!
