Let’s face it: you’re probably going to spend every weekend this summer playing video games anyway. You might as well support a good cause while you’re at it. That’s where Valorant vs. COVID comes in.

On July 18 and 19, the Vancouver Esports Association will host an online Valorant tournament to raise funds for health-care workers in British Columbia.

Hosted in a partnership with Memory Express, SeagateGaming, and the SFU Esports association, Valorant vs. COVID will consist of a two-day tournament with two brackets and up to 32 teams. Entry fees are $5 per player or $25 per team.

All the action will be streamed lived on Memory Express’s Twitch channel, where you can also make donations that will support B.C. Children’s Hospital and Burnaby Hospitals.

I have done a lot of different things over the course of my life and professional career. I have interviewed Oscar and Grammy winners and written cover stories for glossy newsstand magazines. I have played guitar in a rock band on national TV and run an independent music label for which I wrote all of the PR and marketing materials. In my spare time, I sweated out a novel about a world where raccoons are kings and dragons are real.
