As writing of this post, Super Mario Marathon 5 has almost reached the 50k mark. The live fstream is from a Mario-themed living room in Indiana, where a group of gamers are playing select levels from all kinds of Mario games. The play leveles depending on the amount of money donated, with 800 levels across ten Mario games available for them to try to complete.
The money earned will be donated to Child’s Play foundation, which aims to improve “the lives of children with toys and games in [its] network of over 70 hospitals worldwide.” Over $112k in donations were raised at last year’s event. If you like to make a donatrion, you can do so right here, and the stream can be viewed on the Mario Marathon site, which is live at the moent.
