What is Mario Marathon?

Beginning in 2008 a group of friends in Indiana USA have gathered together each summer to play through every Super Mario Bros video game, back-to-back, non-stop, as a fundraiser for Child's Play Charity. The charity that gives video games and toys to kids in children's hospitals and domestic violence shelters around the world.

Since the event began the 2008 the group has raised $418,708 for Child's Play!

Join us beginning June 20th, 2014 as we start again! Clips from past years are available on Twitch.TV.
