Who are Marathon Gamers?
Marathon Gamers is a growing group of friends and family that have come together to help raise money for various charities by doing what we do best, playing games. Our main events are gaming marathons, which like a running marathon, involve us playing games for an extended period of time.
We do take turns playing the games to give others rest, though there is always at least one person playing a game while the game and a webcam are both streamed live over the internet for anyone to watch. Our main source of donations is through the viewers as they enjoy watching us and interacting with us through a chat room that is setup just for our event, through the hours they as well become like friends, and sometimes even members of our group. In some cases people enjoy watching us complete challenges for the donations to these charities, these challenges can be as simple as singing and dancing, though donors have requested we do odd challenges, such as the infamous cinnamon challenge!
