Professional Counter-Strike player Spencer “Hiko” Martin will be joining us as a special guest at Gamers for Giving 2017!
As a youngin’, Hiko grew up playing football, hockey, and baseball until a sports injury gave him some time to play video games for a summer. It was at that point video games started to become a thing. After many years of channeling his competitive spirit into PC gaming, Hiko rose to prominence in the esports scene after his team took home a third place finish in the first major CS: GO tournament at ESWC 2012. Now, Hiko is one of the world’s top competitors.
Last year, through an online stream at the event, Hiko was able to raise enough money to build two GO Karts for hospitals in Michigan. We’ll be showcasing the units he constructed at this year’s event, and he’ll once again be streaming live over on his Twitch channel!
We’ll see you on April 1st and 2nd at the EMU Convocation Center.
