"Mega Man Marathon
Date: August 14th 2009
Time: 6pm CST
Duration: 72 hours
Charity: Earth Day Network (environment)
The upcoming Megaman Marathon starts August 14th at 6:00PM and will run for 72 hours.
TheSpeedGamers have been streaming video game marathons for over a year to raise money for various charities. In total they have raised over $82,000 dollars and played 12 marathons. They have set the record for longest streamed gaming marathon at 168 hours, and have made multiple news appearances. This marathon will be for Earthday.net. This charity helps to "broaden and diversify the environmental movement worldwide, and to mobilize it as the most effective vehicle for promoting a healthy, sustainable environment."
During the marathon we will be commentating outside for parts of the marathon, trying to reduce our carbon footprint, and encouraging others to do the same.
We've got some big news, and will have prizes to be won."
They just concluded their Final Fantasy Marathon a few days ago, and it was really fun to watch and participate in, and they raised over $50,000 for ACT (Autism Care and Treatment) Today.
Definitely a group to keep your eye on, and help support different charities!

A Mega Man marathon sounds like something I would do just for fun. I hope they are able to raise a good amount of money for their cause.
