Utah League of Legends Champions Donate Video Gaming Winnings to Make-A-Wish®

SecurityMetrics team players win against Microsoft, Adobe in charity gaming competition.
OREM, Utah - April 23, 2013 - PRLog -- OREM, Utah – On Monday, the SecurityMetrics’ After Hours Gaming League (AHGL) team won the League of Legends League B championships and donated the $1,000 winnings to Make-A-Wish®, a charity that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

"I enjoy the way Make-A-Wish touches people's lives,” said Sam Ady, SecurityMetrics Penetration Tester and AHGL team captain. “The foundation isn’t just trying to help kids transition from unhappy to satisfied, they help kids transition from unhappy to euphoric.”

The AHGL is a new and modern twist on the traditional corporate sports league, and encourages teamwork, fun, and friendly competition while supporting charity. It showcases the gaming communities within companies, providing a more realistic depiction of gamers as smart and successful professionals. Over the season, SecurityMetrics’ team contested in friendly competition against many large high tech companies such as Oracle, Microsoft, and Adobe on the virtual battlefield of a popular real time strategy game, League of Legends, which hosts more than one million players a day.

“We played against some great competition this year and made many new friends,” said Ady. “Ultimately, we were matched up against strong individual players with a ton of talent, but our ability to play together as a team helped us come out on top.”

SecurityMetrics’ team of 8 has played together since the AHGL pre-season in November 2012.
