Started by Midnight Squadron in 2012, the 24 Hour Gameathon is a charity marathon where gamers from several gaming communities get together for the sake of raising money by playing games. For three years, the Gameathon has worked with a single charity and a single event each year.
In the Fall, we will hold true to tradition and hold our event in support of Child’s Play. Child’s Play is a game industry charity that has been improving the lives of children with toys and games in a network of 70 hospitals worldwide. Child’s Play purchases consoles, peripherals, games and more for hospitals and therapy facilities to provide much needed cheer and joyful distractions to children.
