Telethon: 36 hours of online video games in Vierzon to raise funds

The Eighteen Gaming association will do its part this weekend of December 4 in favor of the Telethon, through a charity video game marathon.

The Telethon returns once again on December 3 and 4, in order to raise funds for research on orphan diseases. In Cher, in Vierzon, members of the Eighteen Gaming association have decided to get their hands dirty by organizing a charity “broadcast” throughout the weekend, a live video game broadcast during which viewers can watch the donations.

Throughout the weekend, the association’s four videographers (or streamers) will take turns animating video streaming with various mainstream games, such as League of Legends or Call of Duty. They are supported in the operation by the Telethon on the Cher, but also by rap producer Stef Becker and local radio Tintouin.

The group was founded in 2018, around brothers Axel and Felix Gimenez and a common passion for electronic sports, video games that are played in competition. Now they claim more than 70 members. When the Telethon stepped up to participate in this great fundraiser, Eighteen Gaming players responded. We like all these little things that we can help with ”, explains Axel, secretary of the association. “Our dad had cancer and he died last year,” he continues, “it was important for us to be able to help the cause of childhood diseases, to help science.”

And they are no longer alone. In 2020, the association had raised “300 or 350” euros for the Telethon. This year, midway through their 36-hour video game marathon, videographers had already raised € 1,025. It is also an opportunity to “do pedagogy” around electronic sports and video games, continues Axel Gimenez. “I am a former competitive player, we realize that esport has taken an incredible turn! We also want to explain to parents and children that video games are very good, but that like everything there are limits.”

The concept of solidarity movement has been increasing in recent months, with the 10 million raised at the end of October for Action contre la Faim by the Z Event in Montpellier or the 23,000 euros raised against violence against women by the Orleanais of Birds by Prey.
