Starting around 8:00 AM CST, I begin my 24-hour gaming marathon. My primary focus will be Xbox One games, and plan to stream to my twitch channel throughout the day. I am $100 away from my fundraising goal of $500. Feel free to drop in to watch at TWITCH and please (if you can) drop me a donation on my Extra Life 2016 page
I plan on making updates throughout the marathon in this thread, too, so feel free to check in here.
So, did you already do your marathon or will you start on the 7th? I know that most people start it a day early or a day later due to jobs or vacations or whatever. If you haven't done it already I might come by.

I am going to start this morning with Assassin's Creed: Unity
Good luck dude!
I'm the kind of guy who stops the microwave at 1 second just to feel like a bomb defuser.

Do you think you can be a badass in my leaderboard?? GTN Badass of the Month

Any interested in Co-Op in Assassin's Creed Unity or Master Chief Collection later?
Every bit counts!

Only $35 away from $500
YAY!!! Big thank you to Monkey Spit and Porsche today, I have surpassed my goal, and am now "playing with house money" to help my tea reach its goals.
11 hours in! Made my goal! Taking games offline (Tabletop and Fallout Shelter) while we watch the LSU-Alabama game.

A big thanks to everyone so far.
Extra Life is over $5.89 Million this year, $1.3 Million today alone
That's fantastic, futiles! I am so glad you (and hopefully many others) hit their goals! Thanks for the Pandora-esque playlist I could crank all afternoon Big Grin

It has become a year-round program for me, with game days being just one part of it. I did a radio interview earlier this year for it, and have spent every month in the past 18 working events, planning outings, working with children from the hospitals, and raising awareness and participation.

Even while working on Extra Life 2015 (which officially ends Dec 31, 2015, so do not think it is too late!!!), I have started my plans for Extra Life 2016. I will be taking part in Extra Life United at the end of February 2016, a nearly week-long event in Orlando, FL (at the Disneyworld Resort) featuring tournaments in PC, Console, and Tabletop Gaming, with winners bringing large prize pools back to their hospitals. I will be taking part in the Tabletop Bracket.

2015 was my second straight $500 fundraising year, and as a $500 fundraiser, I have been awarded a Silver Medal (an actual medal, it's pretty badass, actually), and next year, I am going to try really hard to get to $1000 and get the Gold Medal.

(And for anyone curious, the prizes, like the medals, do not come out of the fundraising, anyone that wants to receive prizes of any kind signs up as a premium participant for $15, and that completely covers all prize costs. )
