I want to take a moment and make mention of a few things we are working on here at DraxisWeb for our gaming things. The first thing I want to mention is that there have been several things that have disrupted our plans to work with the Relay for Life over the past couple of years. As you may know, I was the team leader for our city’s team that oversaw our Twitter and Facebook groups for most of a year. However, due to some internal disputes between myself and the person overseeing our region, I stepped down from that position (I won’t get into why here in public but if someone wishes to contact me feel free and I’ll discuss it privately off the record).
This past year before Covid even hit, things changed for Ocala and not for the greatest. We lost one of our regional people (not the one I had a beef with) and she was replaced with someone new who had vastly different ways of approaching our Relay plans. Normally, we started our season in October, but as October grew closer no one knew anything about what was going to happen- not even our event team leaders. Information and communication was lacking and then finally we heard that things were going to get started in January I believe it was. Now mind you, in Ocala our Relay was typically in April so we just cut down our normal 6 months of planning (we usually had off in December) and cut it down to effectively 3 months to plan and a half to get the final stuff ready. Between this and not having many people show up to the meetings for teams, I have decided that as much as I want to support the Relay for Life that to be honest, for me personally, the ACS really hasn’t done a thing for us and the local community, and Relay in Ocala just isn’t being taken seriously by the ACS it seems nor by the residents. So while it pains me to say this, Relay for Life and the Cancel Cancer movement we started here with DraxisWeb is being put on the back burner for the time being until the ACS can get their shit together in Ocala and take us and our ideas and desires seriously again.
That being said, we at DraxisWeb have a few announcements as to where we want to go in the future for our Gaming things as well as what we want to do with further supporting our favorite charities. So first the charities. DraxisWeb Gaming is proud to say we are once again signing up for Extra Life this year to help raise money for children’s hospitals in our area. This wonderful gaming based charity uses platforms like twitch, youtube, and more to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network. Now while I have not gotten help from the ACS directly when it came to my cancer, my local Hospital Shands in Gainesville where my son was born is a CMN Hospital and as such can get funding directly from what I raise for the CMN through Extra Life. So while I’m not expecting a ton this year seeing as we only have about 4 months till the normal Extra Life 24-hour gaming marathon to raise money for the CMN I am wanting to get the DraxisWeb team established again this year and really cranking things out for next year!
