Team Liquid COVID-19 quarathon

Esports organization Team Liquid has raised $77,178.67 in COVID-19 relief as a result of their week-long “Quarathon”. The live streaming event began on March 21 with a goal of raising $500. Several popular gamers, pro players, and streamers participated. Team Liquid will donate all funds to Direct Relief to help those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Team Liquid’s Content and Influencer Manager Sandra Chen shared this information on Twitter. She indicated that 45 esports players and content creators participated in the event. Some of these included Nurok, Flutten, Grzegorz “MaNa” Komincz, and more. Additionally, a variety of games were played, such as PUBG, League of Legends, and Teamfight Tactics. Overall, plenty of viewers tuned in to watch their favorite streamers broadcast for a good cause.

On March 26, Team Liquid’s League of Legends Jungler Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen had raised over $3,000 in only 4 hours. The amount raised surprised him, so he shared it with his followers, encouraging more people to tune in and donate.

Fighting against the coronavirus

Throughout the past few months, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected multiple countries and placed many cities under “lockdown”. Some states have banned all non-essential businesses from staying open, resulting in many people losing their jobs. Additionally, many hospitals across the globe face shortages in medical supplies to help sick patients. The virus hasn’t shown significant signs of slowing down, especially in the United States.

Team Liquid is doing their part to give back to the community by working with Direct Relief to bring help to communities and hospitals in need. The nonprofit provides essential medical resources to healthcare facilities, which is something that needs plenty of attention during this time.

Chen ended her quick Twitter post by thanking everyone who participated and donated. “Really amazing what we can all do when we come together. This virus affects every one of us and united we will defeat it.”
