Penguins Marathons is a group who have been running video game marathons together since 2009, raising money for their supported charity Big Brothers Big Sisters in Canada, who aim to help children reach their potential in life by offering facilities and mentorship to ensure that those children at risk of falling behind in life get a fair and equal chance at achieving great things.
They are hoping to do that again with a Metroid marathon on Friday June 1st at 7PM EST with a run through every Metroid game until they are completed. They hope to raise $4,000 for BBBS which will really make a big difference to the charity and their work. There are also some great prizes on offer, so be sure to show your support by donating and passing the message on about the marathon.
So far, Penguins Marathons have raised approximately $20,000 for BBBS, wouldn’t it be fantastic if this Metroid marathon was the marathon that raised the most and made the biggest impact? It’d be a fantastic way to say that Metroid has a passionate fan base that cares. Shinesparkers will be supporting the cause and we hope that you will too!
