Story

Did you know that globally, leukaemia affects countless lives daily, with statistics showing that nearly every minute someone is diagnosed with this deadly disease?

2024 is all about canceling cancer.

These aren’t just numbers; they represent friends, family members, and loved ones in the Buildbox.ai Community.

In response to this, Buildbox.ai is hosting the 'Buildbox Cure Leukaemia Game Jam' throughout the month of May. 

This game jam is about more than just prizes; it's a chance to raise awareness and funds for an important cause. Developers can use Buildbox's AI tools to create games that not only entertain but also help in the fight against cancer by raising money for Cure Leukaemia, the blood cancer charity. 

Riding for a Reason: Buildbox.ai CEO, Jonathan Zweig’s Inspirational Journey From Survivor to Advocate

Jonathan, the CEO of Buildbox.ai, is a survivor of leukaemia. Can you believe he was diagnosed at just 7 years old? His journey through cancer and his recovery has inspired him to give back to the community and support cancer research.

This summer, Jonathan is joining the Tour 21, a tough challenge where he and 24 other amateur cyclists will ride the entire Tour de France route, one week before the pros. They're aiming to ride over 3,500km in 21 days to raise more than £1,000,000 for Cure Leukaemia, the official charity partner of the Tour.

All donations go directly to the cure!

Fundraising from the challenge is directly invested in the Trials Acceleration Programme (TAP) which helps those fighting the cancer across the globe.
