Skillz is an online esports medium and it worked in collaboration with the Susan G. Komen foundation, a nonprofit organization on the 'Play for the Cure' event. It was a charity event that directly all of its proceeds towards breast cancer research purposes -- the duo set an original goal of $100,000. This partnership continues its charitable streak, following its work to benefit the Special Olympics and to aid those affected by Hurricane Irma.

Notably, the Play for the Cure event falls in correlation with Women's History Month, spotlighting women's roles in the gaming industry through blog posts. It was reported that over half of its existing 12 million registered players are women, with top players to reflect that statistic.
