In the aftermath of the shooting at a Madden tournament in Jacksonville, many have banded together to help raise money for the victims of the tragedy.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans is among the many who are stepping up to help. The star receiver will compete in an upcoming charity event to help raise money for the Jacksonville Fallen Gamers Fund.

Tiltify will be hosting a live stream Madden tournament on Sept. 3 through Twitch. Donations received from viewers watching the live stream will go to the families of Elijah Clayton and Taylor Robertson.

In the charity event, Evans will play a game against Shay Kivlen, a Madden competitor who survived the shooting.
