Video Games Fight Cancer Both On and Off the Screen Auremar/PhotoSpin

Participants who donate a minimum of $10 to Will Ferrell’s SuperMegaBlastMax Gamer Challenge may receive designated promotional gifts.

If the challenge goal of $375,000 is met by the deadline of October 12, 2014, one donor will be selected in a random drawing to travel to San Francisco for the grand prize opportunity to play video games in person with Ferrell.

Funds raised by the challenge will be used to fund college scholarships for cancer survivors and to provide financial support to families with children fighting cancer.
