  • If you keep donating to Child’s Play*, they will keep playing all weekend and beyond! Since 2008, the group has raised over $500,000 for Child’s Play. This year the team is pushing to cross far beyond the half-million dollar mark! The charity provides games, books and toys to a network of over 100 children’s hospitals worldwide.

    As of right now, three former college room mates (Brian “Shirt Guy” Brinegar, John “Couch Guy” Groth, and Chris “Slouch Guy” Deckard), many other friends and Couch Dog are attempting to play through each one of the above Super Mario games in their entirety. The whole list is on their website.

    Mario Marathon is a multi-day charity drive broadcast live online through Twitch.TV. The event starts with a small group of gamers attempting to complete a list of levels from Nintendo’s popular series of Super Mario video games. Viewers of the show add levels to the players’ queue by making donations to Child’s Play. This continues until all of the levels in the queue are conquered (no easy feat). Throughout the show, viewers connect with the team through the event’s website and social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter. The event features celebrity call-ins, sing-a-longs, contests and raffles.

    Here’s what Brian Brinegar, Event Coordinator, has to say about this year’s event:

    “Mario Marathon is returning for 2016 with our 8th marathon for Child’s Play Charity!

    The event begins Friday, June 24th at 11 am EDT and features prizes including T-Shirts, game systems, games, and much much more!

    Since 2008, Mario Marathon has raised over $500,000 for children’s hospitals and domestic violence shelters through annual non-stop multi-day video gaming marathons.”

    * Child’s Play Charity provides toys, games and books to patients of children’s hospitals world wide. It’s a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in a network of hospitals worldwide. Since its inception in 2003, the charity has distributed over $40 million worth of toys, games, books, and cash. Child’s Play’s Jamie Dillion says: “We rely heavily on community run initiatives such as Mario Marathon. These fund raising events represent our greatest strength: the generosity and determinations of gamers.”

    Good luck guys, you’ve got our continued support!
