The 2014 Winter Campaign event will be held
December 6th at the War Room located in the TC Paintball store at 1825 M-37 South Traverse City. Come Join us for a day of fun and games for a good cause!
In memory of our dear friend Matthew Litchfield who lost his battle with cancer at the age of 9. He won our hearts while playing games with us and bravely fighting the good fight against this terrible disease.
Matthew was a true Jedi: strong, compassionate, and inquisitive. May he be one with the Force now and forever.
Please take a minute to go check out what these 3 fellow Geeks are doing!

Gaming for a Cure started in 2006 to honor the loss of a dear friend Wesley Geer. It has now grown into the focal point of supporting cancer awareness and research among the hobbyist community in Northern Michigan. We started off with a focus on role-playing and card games that expanded bringing board games and table top games such as Warhammer and Wings of War. The addition of the live Auction in 2007 was eagerly embraced by participants and donors alike. Gaming for a Cure began branching into the electronic games in 2008 with a Nintendo Wii playing Guitar Hero projected onto a wall. In 2009 the Northwestern Michigan College donated part of another building to allow us to use a computer lab to include a LAN-party of Battle Field 1942.
Our members take pride in the time and effort they donate to make Gaming for a Cure such a success. We are working to prevent the loss of another Wesley Geer and uniting the community through open-minded curiosity into the worlds of gaming. Come support your loved ones who have lost their fight, and those who have survived this devastating disease, and become "a HERO of a different kind of war."
-Jodie Brandt, Founder and Chairman of Gaming for a Cure.
