Throughout the week of April 24, Pokémon Twitch streamers plan to raise $100,000 for St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

Catch a Million to Conquer Kids’ Cancer is a 7-day marathon in which Twitch streamers are challenged to catch a million Pokémon to fundraise for St. Baldrick’s Foundation. St. Baldrick’s is committed to funding the most promising childhood cancer research projects, regardless of location. The goal of $100,000 will fund research worldwide. Every streamer with an appreciation for Pokémon is welcome to participate in the Catch a Million event. 

How it works:

  • A Twitch-integrated app tracks the Pokémon participating streamers capture during the fundraiser and updates live with the latest capture data and new challenges for participating streamers.
  • As long as streamers are live on Twitch (with the tracker), their captures will count toward the million-Pokémon goal.
  • Every Pokémon counts toward the million-Pokémon goal, from Red and Blue through modern releases. 
  • Participants MUST register for the event on CatchAMillion to contribute towards the overall goal.

A 24/7 Twitch Plays race pits Team Bruce Greene and Team KaraCorvus in a race to complete as much Pokémon content as possible using the “Twitch Plays” chat-driven gameplay format. Each team’s community will play the classic Pokémon Red and Blue collectively by entering commands in chat. 

Team captain Bruce Greene is an independent content creator who previously created gaming content for channels like Inside Gaming, Funhaus, and an array of Rooster Teeth productions. Captain KaraCorvus is a scientist and gamer. Previously employed as a microbiologist, she is now streaming, acting, modelling, and voice acting full time.

Where all streamers are welcome to fundraise for St. Baldrick’s, all viewers are invited to participate in the Twitch Plays race in between supporting their favorite Pokémon streamers.
