Twitch’s 6t4bites will host the livestream.

The You Can program is dedicated to the construction of specialised youth cancer centres around Australia, targeted at patients between 15-25 years old. This year’s River4Ward event will also fund Sony Foundation’s virtual You Can Centre, known as The You Can Network. According to Sony, the online platform “will enable young patients, their families and friends to connect with those going through similar issues regardless of their proximity to a physical You Can Centre.”

Earlier in the month, the Sony Foundation raised a whopping $640,000 AUD in Melbourne for You Can.
