As the war between Terran, Vanu and the New Conglomerate continues, it reveals a new faction to battle against...Breast Cancer? A bunch of Planetside 2 players are teaming up to play 24 hours straight in their favorite MMO, in order to raise donations, and awareness in the fight against breast cancer.
The 24 hour Planetside 2 play-athon will be taking place on October 26th, on the Connery server; raising money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, who are fighting to find a cure.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so there's no better time to get involved! The 24 hour play-athon is being hosted by 4 of the servers leading clans; CASH, 666, TRG and OP4, and there are a few different ways that you can take part:

2. You can watch their livestream and cheer them on. The stream link has yet to be announced.
