Got plans this weekend? Cancel ‘em. Starting bright and early at 8am on Saturday, October 15th, our very own Andy Mindler will be live-streaming his attempt to play video games for 24 hours straight. Much to everyone’s relief, this is not some new hobby Andy’s picked up, he’s doing it for the children! Or, rather, for charity. It’s all part of an Extra Life 24 hour gaming marathon event to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Andy is playing for the Golisano Children’s Hospital in his hometown of Rochester, NY and has already raised $200 so far. To keep himself honest as he powers through all 24 hours, he’s going to set up a live stream channel where anyone can view his gaming shenanigans and possibly NSFW language.
For more information about Extra Life, to donate to Andy, or find the live stream, go here. Think of the children!
And don’t forget to check back in a week or so when Andy will regale us with his first-hand account of his arduous gaming journey and a full report on just how much it messed up his dreams when he finally did get to sleep.
