DrLupo Build Against Cancer 2022 24-hour livestream; creator aims to surpass $13 million lifetime goal for St. Jude


Content creator DrLupo attempts to surpass $13 million total with Build Against Cancer, benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

YouTube streamer Ben 'DrLupo' Lupo is back with the fifth annual charitable livestream effort to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital with Build Against Cancer 2022. The livestream begins on December 17 at noon CT and will feature DrLupo playing various games in pursuit of a record $13 million. If he accomplishes this feat, the popular content creator will become the top fundraiser for St. Jude among gamers. 

What to expect during DrLupo's upcoming St. Jude charity live stream

For the first time since these charitable events began, DrLupo will broadcast the Build Against Cancer 2022 24-hour livestream from the St. Jude campus in Memphis, Tennessee. The content creator will interview and play games with St. Jude patients throughout the day worth of content. Furthermore, DrLupo plans to feature an unknown lineup of celebrities and online personalities. 
In the past, recognizable names such as Jack "CouRageJD" Dunlop, Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, Nick "NICKMERCS" Kolcheff, and others appeared during the Build Against Cancer event. You'll have to tune in to see who drops by during the 24-hour livestream. In 2021, DrLupo raised over $890,000, bringing him to over $10 million raised cumulatively. 
DrLupo commented on his fifth Build Against Cancer event, where he aims to shatter an impressive lifetime charity goal:

"I look forward to this event every year, as it is a special time for the gaming community to join together and make a real difference in the lives of children and families battling cancer. This year feels even more special, as I'll be streaming live for the very first time from St. Jude in Memphis. We have some exciting surprises up our sleeve and are hoping to make this year the best Build Against Cancer yet!"
