An OpTic Gaming charity livestream, dubbed the “Stream-A-Thon” is taking place later today, Friday, June 17. The stream will benefit the Children’s Health and the Children’s Health Medical Center Foundation, an official partner of the organization. The proceeds from the stream will all go directly to the children’s charities and will feature a plethora of popular personalities, most of whom will be prominent figures of OpTic Gaming; the stream will also include some guest appearances from outside of the esports organization.
The OpTic Stream-A-Thon begins at 3 PM EST on Friday, June 17, and will be live on OpTic’s Twitch channel, twitch.tv/opticgaming. The individual personalities who are participating in the stream will also be live for their point of view during the various challenges that take place throughout the stream. Some of the personalities making an appearance on the stream include Dashy, Scump, H3CZ, Shotzzy, Team Summertime, aPG, FormaL, Karma, Holly, Sebas, ZLaner, and Maniac.
The charity event will also feature various well-known esports professionals and content creators, such as Rocket League’s Athena and Super Smash Bros’ Wizzrobe. Throughout the stream, these personalities will host a specific event for the esport they’re most known for. The full schedule for the OpTic Stream-A-Thon is found below, courtesy of OpTic.

There will be donation milestone incentives for viewers to hit, which trigger giveaways and other rewards like getting to hit a specific OpTic member in the face with a pie.
