Scholar and gentleman Stephen Ellis in the past has saved our marathon by driving from out of state and playing games for us during the hard to fill night shift. I don’t know where we would be without you. Stephen has donated prizes generously and given away a console during GoM2. He’s coming back this year, and has agreed to play for 12+ hours strait because I am a terrible schedule maker.

What is Game On Marathon 3?
Who is Child’s Play Charity?
My child got gum in his hair, should I cut the gum out?
No. Try baby oil, or cooking oil.
Beginning in 2013 Game On Marathon, set out to help improve the lives of children. Game On Marathon’s 91 consecutive hour live streaming event aimed to earn a minimum of $1000 for Child’s Play Charity. We were shocked and amazed at the reception we received. During the event our expectations were overwhelmingly exceeded. Thanks to the generous donors of Game On Marathon, Child’s play earned a total of $1750. Child’s Play Charity provides toys and games in their network of over 70 hospitals worldwide. We chose Child’s Play Charity because it is very community based and relies heavily on gaming events like ours. To help promote the event we have drew heavily on our inner artist to craft one of a kind creations that were raffled off to our contributors. All proceeds went directly to Child’s Play Charity where they work with hospital staff, to set up gift wish lists full of video games, toys, books, and other fun stuff for kids. With Child’s Play Charity’s cash donations, they purchase new consoles, peripherals, games, and more for hospitals and therapy facilities. These donations allow for children to enjoy age-appropriate entertainment, interact with their peers, friends, and family, and can provide vital distraction from an otherwise generally unpleasant experience.
