The world is coming together during this time of crisis to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic, and people of all walks of life are stepping up, including former Raiders fullback Marcel Reece and current Raiders safety Johnathan Abram.
In isolation, several people have resorted to video games for entertainment, and the biggest streaming site, Twitch, has decided to host a 12-hour event Saturday, March 28, to raise proceeds to fight COVID-19.
Per Twitch's website, Stream Aid 2020 will feature individuals from the worlds of gaming, music, and sports. Athletes and musicians will participate in the event, with all the proceeds going to Solidarity Response Fund for WHO, which is powered by the United Nations. Reece and Abram, along with notable artists and athletes such as, Diplo, Ellie Goulding, Richard Sherman, and many more, will perform during the live stream and compete in the Twitch Rivals Fortnite and UNO tournament. Abram will be competing on Saturday between 2:30 - 5:30 p.m. PDT.
The event begins at 9 a.m. PDT and will conclude at 8:30 p.m. PDT. If you'd like to view the programming schedule, or find out more information, click here.
