Mario Marathon is Over and Was a Big Success!

Mario Marathon After Unlocking Luigi

Mario Marathon, the epic gaming weekend of fund raising proportions is now over. In the end they raised over 11,142.50$ for Penny Arcade’s charity Child’s Play. The group of gamers Brian, John, and Dan completed Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros 2, Super Mario Bros 3, Super Mario World, Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and completed Super Mario Galaxy with a 120 stars in just under 58 hours. Which is an amazing feat within itself, but even more amazing was the amount of money that they raised!

The group started gaming on Friday (6/27) at 3pm and ended Monday (6/30) at 12:30am. Congratulations to them and their gaming exploits, also a quick special thanks to Brian’s Wife for putting up with them, Couch Dog, Slouch Guy, Blanket Girl, Baby Mario, and all the other people who contributed to this weekend of gaming goodness. We at Infendo wish you good luck and best wishes in any further exploits of sleep deprived marathon gaming you guys might do in the future.
