Piranha Games and Infinite
Game Publishing, the teams behind MechWarrior Online, today revealed the final tally for the heartwarming "Sarah's Mech" fundraiser event. The event was in honor of a young Canadian pilot, five-year-old Sarah Marie Alida Parries, who sadly passed away following a battle with cancer. The developers created a custom mech to help raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society and they're delighted to reveal a staggering $122,200 has been raised.
A special ceremony will be held at IGP headquarters on Montreal on August 23rd at 10:30 a.m.
?The MechWarrior community was so touched by this young girl?s story that they really drove what happened next,? said Kelly Zmak, president of IGP. ?Reading through thousands of comments on our forums and social pages, IGP and Piranha agreed immediately to create an in-game ?Mech in Sarah?s honor for charity.?
?The money raised in tribute to Sarah serves as an inspiration for all of us,? explained Scott Fairbairn, Director, Corporate Development at the Canadian Cancer Society. ?It speaks to the strong sense of community evident in players of MechWarrior but also clearly demonstrates how this story has touched the broader community resulting in a legacy of hope in contrast to the sadness we all feel with Sarah?s passing.?
