OW League Broadcast Over ESPN, ABC and Disney XD – News


It seems Overwatch players are a charitable bunch indeed and Mercy once again helped her team out immensely, only this time the team was Breast Cancer research! The over 12.7 million dollars raised during the campaign is also the largest amount one campaign has raised for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in a one-year span. And if that wasn’t enough, there was an additional $130,000 raised through donations on Overwatch twitch streams!

Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of the Overwatch community during the Pink Mercy charity campaign, we’ve raised more than $12.7 million (USD) to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

This is the largest donation by a corporate partner within one year in BCRF’s 25-year history, and it’s all because of you.

In addition to picking up the charity skin, players showed their support for the cause by purchasing thousands of limited-edition Pink Mercy T-shirts, available for men and women, designed by community artist VICKISIGH.

Charity stream viewers, rejoice! In addition to the $12.7 million raised through sales of the skin and T-shirt, you separately raised over $130,000 USD in donations watching 14 different Overwatch stars stream on Twitch.

Over the course of the two-week fundraising campaign, the community came together to create fan art, cosplay, and more.
