Leonardo Arana de la Garza, General Director of Casa de la Amistad also extended his appreciation for the players.

“Over the last few years we have been focusing on creating bonds with diverse sectors, so that everyone can get to know our cause and labour. In this specific case, we have united efforts with the Gamer community and we have launched the ‘League of Help’ campaign, which, since this September, has aimed to raise funds through cause-based streams.

The Gamer community have shown us that amazing things can happen when we work together… together, we can help more girls, boys and young people to get the oncological treatments that they need.

We are truly excited with the ‘Athena´s Charity Cup’ tournament, organised by Androly San, which we are sure will bring us closer to sensible people who will join our cause. It is a way to connect with fans of Saint Seiya Awakening: Knights of the Zodiac, through a social cause.”
