Dominique “SonicFox” McLean was crowned champion in the Injustice 2 Pro Series this week, and he’s donating a large portion of his winnings to fellow eSports professional Curtis “Rewind” McCall.

SonicFox walked away the winner of the Injustice 2 Pro Series Grand Finals in Chicago, Illinois this week along with the $40,000 Grand Prize.

So, what does he plan to do with such a large paycheck? Donate $10,000 of it to the family of Rewind, who finished second place.

“I don’t do this for the money,” SonicFox said in a post-win interview (via Kotaku). “[Rewind] is one of my good friends, one of my training partners, and I’m so very happy to have shared the stage with him.”

Rewind’s father has stage 3 cancer and he went into surgery a day before the Injustice 2 EVO 2018 champ left for the Injustice 2 Pro Series.

That’s a wonderful thing SonicFox is doing, and we wish Rewind’s father a speedy recovery.

Thanks, Resetera.
