On Saturday, September 19, Team FURY is back to defend their 5v5 title against Team ATL and win more money for charity. In July, Joey Fury and his team took down Cuddle_Core and her Midwest squad in COREvsFURY. The event was a smashing success, raising $1070 USD in total donations. For FURYvsATL, the East Coast is back with a new charity and new opponents.
Captain Joey Fury will lead the East Coast into battle to support Children’s Literacy Initiative. Children’s Literacy Initiative is a 501(c)(3) non-profit working with pre-kindergarten through 5th grade teachers to improve early literacy instruction so that children become powerful readers, writers, and thinkers.
"The foundation of our society is set by the education of our children. I believe the profession of being a teacher is one of the most noble and important paths a person can take. CLI is devoted to working with teachers throughout the U.S. to enhance the effectiveness of classroom environments. They promote literacy by providing coaching, materials, and workshops. CLI is actively helping to bridge the literacy gap between low-income and affluent communities," says Joey Fury regarding choosing CLI for this event.
Team ATL, led by Anakin, will be fighting for Habitat for Humanity. Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
"Habitat for Humanity provided one of our team members, pokchop, a home to raise his family in. Since it's also the home where he trains all the new blood, we'd like to give back and dedicate our run to HFH," Anakin explains.
The event begins at 3 p.m. ET and will be streamed live on the EQNX Twitch channel. A minimum $5 donation can also enter viewers into the FURYvsATL raffle. Raffle prizes are provided by Qanba and EQNX. Donate at the event Matcherino and use codes “TeamFURY” or “TeamATL” to add a free 50 cents to the pot.
