The people behind Mario Marathon have announced their third annual event that will coincide with Penny Arcade’s Child’s Play charity event (the Child’s Play Charity strives to improve the lives of patients at childrens hospitals by giving them toys and video games).
The Mario Marathon Team is a fundraiser that works as a completely non-profit organization, collecting donations as they attempt to stream runs of “every game in the Mushroom Kingdom” on ustream.tv, with all of the donations going directly towards the Child’s Play charity.
Last year, 1,398 viewers donated $29,082 in the span of 96 hours. This year, the event starts on June 25, with the team, of course, hoping to top that goal.
