Formers Huskers Host 24-Hour Charity Stream for Child Brain Cancer

Thursday, December 5, 2019

Former Huskers, Kenny Bell, Jeremiah Sirles & Tommy Armstrong, Jr., hosted a 24-hour charity stream on Twitch.Tv to benefit child brain cancer research through the Team Jack Foundation. The event began at 12PM CST on December 3, 2019, which was also Giving Tuesday and wrapped up at the same time on December 4. 

This new-to-us fundraising idea was a great success, crushing the original $3,000 goal and raising nearly $6,000 and counting! Twitch is an online streaming platform where according to their site, "is where millions of people come together live every day to chat, interact, and make their own entertainment together". In the case of Kenny, Jeremiah and Tommy, they were live-streaming their video gaming for 24 hours. Each of the guys took a five-hour shift and a three-hour shift and engaged with their followers while gaming. 
These former Huskers' involvement in the Team Jack Foundation goes back to their days at Nebraska. They got to know Jack Hoffman, the namesake of the Foundation, and volunteered at the annual Nebraska Footbal Road Race. In addition, they were all Huskers when then seven year-old Jack scored a 69-yard touchdown during the 2013 Nebraska Spring Game. Kenny, Jeremiah and Tommy are all members of the Team Jack Husker Alumni Chapter that exists to aid the Foundation in raising awareness and research funds for pediatric brain cancer. 
The truth of the matter is this.....we had NO IDEA was a Twitch Charity Stream was, but we didn't have to! These guys took the idea and ran with it and made an impact on child brain cancer. Do you have an idea for a fundraiser? Great! Go with it and we'll support you the best we can. It's about making a difference for kids affected by brain cancer. Click here to get started.
