Barstool Wazzu for Ben Cushing

As the guy behind the Barstool Wazzu account, no one hates the Huskies more than I do. But with the Apple Cup coming up we here at Barstool recognized an opportunity to turn our normally bitter rivalry into something positive. We are teaming up with Barstool UW for the next two weeks for a friendly competition to see who can raise the most for their respective charities.

The cause that we here at WSU will support is in honor of Ben Cushing, a WSU fraternity member who lost his battle with Hepatosplenic T-cell Lymphoma on October 2nd, 2017. This form of cancer is extremely rare, only affecting 50 people nationwide. It is because of this that Ben and his family set up the Cush it to the Limit Foundation, donating their funds to support Ben's oncologist, Dr. Shustov, in his research on treating this disease. We are working with Ben's family to promote this challenge and their foundation.

How this is going to work is that whichever school wins, will receive 100% of the donations to their own charity, as well as 50% of the donations to the losing schools charity. (If we raise $100, UW raises $80, $140 will be donated to Cush it to the Limit, and $40 will be donated to UWs charity.) We have until 12:00 PM Noon on Sunday the 26th to raise more money than Barstool UW.

We are looking forward to beating UW two days in a row next week! Thank you for the help and Go Cougs!
