Sarah's Jenner (Mechwarrior Online)
In May of 2013, one of the youngest Mechwarrior Online players passed away from brain cancer. Piranha Games decided to honor Sarah, the aforementioned five-year-old. They designed a personalized Jenner mech, and named it "Sarah's Jenner." It was painted with many colors, and featured a rainbow, a teddy bear, and a pink peace symbol. Throughout the summer of 2013, the mech was sold for $10, resulting in Piranha Games raising $122,330, all of which was donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.
