"The tragic events of last week's school shooting have left us all shaken and upset," said Florida Mayhem CEO Ben Spoont in the statement. "As the community begins to heal, we felt a need to try to honor not only the victims but also the message and passion that the community has since voiced. In honor of Parkland, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and the entire State of Florida which we represent we are proud to wear the Stoneman Douglas patch to bring both awareness and sense of community healing to all."
The team is encouraging the Overwatch community to donate to the victims' GoFundMe page, which has currently raised more than $2 million.
