The Overwatch League and its teams are always doing extras aside from the main competition, and now GamesIndustry.biz has reported that Immortals (owner of the LA Valiant team) has partnered with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, with the Valiant committing to raising $500,000 USD over two years to help battle against illness.
As part of this the team will run a number of events like charity streams and the North American Championship Clash today, adding to their already impressive record of money raised for the hospital in the first season of the competition.
"It is part of our organisational DNA to give back to the communities that we serve and represent," said Noah Whinston, executive chairman of Immortals. "We believe wholeheartedly in the mission of St. Jude, and it is an honour to work with a partner that shares our values of inclusivity. It's incredible that families at St. Jude never receive a bill, so they can focus on what matters most - helping their child live."
