It is understandable that the Stoneman Douglas shooting in Parkland, Florida hits close to the Overwatch League team from Florida, so the team is honoring the victims and helping to raise money while participating in the league.
The team tweeted out a message of support yesterday, stating that they will be wearing patches during their games that represent the Stoneman Douglas High School. They also tweeted out links for raising money for victims, such as GoFundMe and a Sun Sentinel aggregate of fundraising links.
“The Florida Mayhem players will come to the stage this week wearing patches honoring the community of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High following last week’s horrible event,” the statement starts. “Everyone in our organization has been touched by the impact of the act and the strength of those affected, and as proud representatives of Florida we wish to demonstrate our support and promote continued positive outreach by the larger Overwatch population.”
The next Florida Mayhem game is Saturday, February 24 against the Philadelphia Fusion.
