The Movie God   |  @   |  

Super Mario MarathonBrian Brinegar, a 29-year-old web developer from Lafayette, Indiana, and two of his avid gamers friends, Dan May and John Groth, decided to get together and play seven Super Mario Brothers games straight through the weekend for a good cause, the Child’s Play Charity.

The trio have been playing the original Super Mario Bro. all the way through to Super Mario Galaxy. Check out the fun while it lasts at Super Mario Marathon; and please give what you can, if you’re apt to do so! To date they’ve already raised over $11,000 for Child’s Play.

The marathon ends Monday, June 30th, but donations will continue to be accepted, so go quickly! Also, you can view a ton of recorded video of the event on on the official Ustream.tv page here.

  1. The event was awesome. A pleasure to watch from beginning to end (barring short breaks for sleep). I’m amazed and happy that the donations reached the level they did.
