HyperX joins the 2022 event as major sponsor for Australia’s largest speedrunning event.
Australian Speedrun Marathon (ASM2022), Australia’s largest and longest-running speedrunning event, is kicking off on Thursday 13th July and will run through to Sunday 17th July. The flagship 5-day annual marathon of the AusSpeedruns community is back in person this year and will be fundraising for Game On Cancer®.
Game On Cancer® is an initiative of Cure Cancer, an Australia-based charity dedicated entirely to funding early career cancer researchers and to date has provided over 540 research grants to young scientists with ground-breaking innovative ideas, many who have gone on to become leaders in cancer research globally.
In 2022, leading gaming peripheral maker HyperX will join the event as the major partner, supporting the production of the event with its high-performance gaming hardware, promoting the marathon to the HyperX community and donating to the fundraising efforts.
Ethan Levy, Coordinator at AusSpeedruns, said “AusSpeedruns greatly welcomes the support of HyperX for our 2022 events. Having the support of fantastic organisations like HyperX helps us achieve our core goals of building a stronger speedrunning community here in Australia, and raising more money for wonderous causes like Game On Cancer.”
“It is important HyperX is an active citizen and has a positive impact on our communities, so the team is proud to be the major sponsor for Cure Cancer and AusSpeedruns 2022 events in Australia. It makes sense for us to support causes like this that do such amazing work and inspire the good in the gaming community, aligning with the concept that ‘We’re All Gamers’, &
Shane Bailey, Head of Gaming & Streaming at Cure Cancer, said, “Our team is thrilled to be partnering with the AusSpeedruns community once again, this time for ASM2022. Funds raised during the marathon will support life-saving cancer research and having the support of HyperX will only help us make an even bigger difference together.”
The full schedule for ASM2022 as well as details of the talent involved can be found on the AusSpeedruns website and the event can be watched live on the AusSpeedruns Twitch channel. Donations to the fundraiser can be made on the ASM2022 Tiltify fundraising page.
Viewers can show their support for Game On Cancer® by following on Twitter, joining the community on Discord and finally, and most importantly, tuning into the event and donating.
