London, England – December 1st, 2020 – This Wednesday, SEGA® Europe Ltd. is kicking off a week-long initiative of charity livestreams in collaboration with Stand Up To Cancer® (SU2C). Together with beloved development studios Amplitude Studios™, Creative Assembly™, Relic Entertainment™ and Two Point Studios™, SEGA Europe will be working with dozens of talented content creators to raise money for SU2C’s groundbreaking cancer research programs.
Stand Up To Cancer launched its #SU2CStreamTeam fundraising campaign in 2019, inviting gamers and content creators to host charity streams and help raise awareness and funds for lifesaving cancer research. Every penny of the support SU2C receives goes directly to its collaborative cancer research programs.
“Now more than ever, it’s critical to support cancer research. In the U.S. alone, we continue to lose one person every minute to this terrible disease,” said Sung Poblete, PhD, RN, CEO of Stand Up To Cancer. “We are immensely grateful to SEGA and its talented network of content creators who are turning their passion into action by supporting the cancer community at this time.”
As part of this campaign, as well as of the celebration of SEGA’s 60th anniversary, SEGA Europe, Amplitude Studios™, Creative Assembly™ and Relic Entertainment™ will be hosting official developer streams throughout the week, streaming alongside the many participating community members & fans from around the world. While content creators will be live throughout the week, the official SEGA stream schedule is as follows:
