It has been almost 3 years since the community of gamers lost a good friend in Jerry Stefek to aggressive lymphoma in December 2018. His family and friends miss the presence of this wonderful man. He was always generous and passionate of his loves and hobbies; Jerry was the best of us. We here at The Jerry Stefek Memorial Crawl for the Cure call the community to action to do Good and Mighty Deeds in Jerry’s memory and the memory of others we have loved and lost on our paths.  On Saturday, December 11th, 2021 we ask you to join us from 8 AM to Midnight CST at our newly dubbed Ethermeet to raise money for cancer research and patient assistance.

The Crawl for the Cure is a “play-a-thon” style format on the Twitch channel DCC Mayhem where your donations can influence the games! All donations will go to the American Cancer Society and their good works!

We will be playing four 4-hour charity sessions starting at 8 AM CST and going through Midnight, showcasing some incredible Judges to encourage you to spend your gold for the cause:

Your donations will not only help the American Cancer Society, but also influence our games during the event! Provide the details of what chaos or boon you would like to provide our players, and we’ll put it in the game – donor’s choice! This year the American Cancer Society is using Tiltify as their platform of choice for gamer supported events – we are currently performing our Artifact Check and we will get the donation information updated as soon as possible so you are fully informed!  Please visit for updates and we’ll post to social channels with all the details.

Our cups floweth over with sponsor donations this year; thank you to all of our extremely generous sponsors for their incredible support. We have a combination of digital and physical rewards from our stalwart champions this year and we’ll get the raffle schedule up on the site as soon as we can.
