On 19th August 2022 from 6.30pm Rob and Matt Hall (and friends) will be taking on the 24 hour 'Overwatch' livestream Challenge for the 3rd year running! This means they'll be playing the video game 'Overwatch', for 24 hours straight, raising money for MDS UK!
Rob and Matt's dad was diagnosed with MDS in 2015 so it’s an incredibly important cause for them. Read their thoughts about this year's upcoming, 24hr 'Overwatch' challenge.
“Here we are once again! Year number 3 and we want to make things bigger, better, more enjoyable and of course raise even more money! The fact still remains that 24 hours of one game is quite frankly a little bit stupid, but if it can raise money and awareness for an amazing charity then every one of those 24 hours is worth it. Mine and Rob’s dad was diagnosed with MDS in 2015 so it’s an incredibly important cause for us. The MDS Patient Support Group do an amazing job of providing vital information and support to patients and their families during diagnosis and treatment and we can’t think of a better cause to raise money for." Matt Hall
"We’re back playing Overwatch for 24 hours straight for MDS UK because they're a brilliant charity, doing incredible work. Challenges? Well, it’s a long time to be awake, that’s the one challenge... playing the game’s the second challenge... third challenge is dealing with the other 4 idiots doing this with me.” Rob Hall
Come and cheer them along! They'll be live on their Twitch channel, twitch.tv/reelfilm on the 19th August from 6:30pm.
Any level of support you can give is hugely appreciated, however large or small.
