Misfits Gaming Group (Misfits) has partnered with Baptist Health Foundation to provide support for the Baptist Health Miami Cancer Institute Bounce Back from Cancer™ event in March.
Bounce Back from Cancer™ is a partnership between the Miami HEAT and Baptist Health Foundation to raise critical funds to help the non-profit Miami Cancer Institute achieve its vision of a world without cancer. The main event takes place on March 12, and in the weeks leading up to the event, Misfits will be bringing together creators to raise money through charity streams. From March 1 to March 11th, participating creators will direct donations from their fans to Baptist Health Foundation’s Miami Cancer Institute charity foundation via a Softgiving donation link during their livestreams. On March 12, fans will have the opportunity to meet a selection of Misfits influencers at the Bounce Back from Cancer™ event, taking place at the AT&T Plaza at the FTX Arena in Miami.
Funds raised through Bounce Back from Cancer™ will help Miami Cancer Institute conduct breakthrough research, access the world’s latest technologies and equipment, and retain internationally recognized cancer experts who provide world-class cancer care right here at home. Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in the united states, and Bounce Back from Cancer™ aims to provide critical support to those fighting to defeat it.
Participating Misfits Creators include PackAPuncher, Lunchtime, Deku, Surfnboy, MrsChimChim, Shaya, and Inviicta.
“We’re incredibly proud to partner with Baptist Health Foundation for their signature fundraising event in Miami alongside the Miami HEAT,” said Ben Spoont, CEO and co-founder of Misfits Gaming Group. “This is an incredibly important cause and we’re thrilled that we can help raise awareness in the weeks before the show to make Bounce Back from Cancer as impactful as it can be through the help of our creators.”
“Bounce Back From Cancer is an incredibly meaningful event for us at Baptist Health Foundation and all the patients and families the Miami Cancer Institute supports,” said Alex Villoch, CEO of Baptist Health Foundation. “We’re thrilled to partner with Misfits Gaming in the days leading up to our main event to help amplify what we’re doing to a wider online audience. The continued support we receive goes towards life-saving research and every donation has an impact.”
