FIFA 19, Destiny 2 and Sonic Forces games join Stand up to Cancer fight - you can too!

Stand Up To Cancer is calling on gamers nationwide to plug in, power up and take to the battleground this autumn to raise money for life saving research.

With the support of EA Games, Activision and SEGA, Stand Up To Cancer has brought together some of the most iconic heroes from games including FIFA 19, Destiny 2 and Sonic Forces to send out a rallying call to arms, asking gamers to come together and face their biggest and most powerful enemy: cancer.

In a rousing film narrated by Doug Cockle, American actor famed for the voice of Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher series, each character shows grit and determination as they unite against cancer. Whether it’s Ikora Rey from Destiny 2 using his warlock armour, Spyro breathing fire or FIFA’s Neymar Jr using his fancy footwork, they are all poised and ready to show cancer it’s payback time.

Stand Up To Cancer is a joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 to raise money for ground breaking research that will save lives. As part of this year’s campaign, gaming fans all over the country are being encouraged to sign up to Game On, sponsored by BT, and take on an epic gaming challenge whilst raising money.

Doug Cockle said: “I am so pleased to be involved in Stand Up To Cancer’s 2018 campaign, bringing together the gaming community to help take on cancer and ban it from the game of life. Cancer sucks. It’s touched my life and will have touched many of your own lives, so it really means a lot to me to be able to use my work and my passion to support Stand Up To Cancer, and the research it funds.

“It was a lot of fun doing the voice-over for all these cool characters from an incredible range of games. This horrible disease affects so many of us and it’s about time we got payback once and for all. Together we can make a difference. Through Game On, gamers everywhere can do what they love and raise money for life-saving research at the same time. Get in the game…Stand Up To Cancer!”
