Welcome to the home of the annual Super Nintendo Charity Challenge!
Over 10 years, Child's Play has raised millions upon millions of dollars to benefit children in hospitals. Their primary goal is to provide toys, games, and other fun things to hospitals to help offset what is assuredly a tough time in any kid's life.
The founders of this project, Mike Hannemann and Alex Russell, have donated individually for years, but they wanted to do something bigger. They wanted to hold an event that would draw even more attention to this awesome charity and hopefully raise as much money as possible to benefit the cause.
What better way than by playing games?
During the first weekend of November, a determined group of gamers will be playing a collection of the best games ever released for the Super Nintendo (and some which are just okay) for 72 straight hours. From this page, you can check out the full list of games, get to know the people playing them, and see the schedule of when everything is going to go down. You can also follow along when the event starts or get in touch with us directly.
We sincerely thank you for checking us out and hope that you'll join us in donating.
Thanks for tuning in and donating this year! You've helped us raise $1,538 for Child's Play this year, which puts us very close to $10,000 over our first four years. That kind of money really makes a difference for such a great cause, so thanks a lot for being there along the way.
We'll see you next November!
We're well into day 2 and we've passed the $400 mark for donations!
Thanks to everyone who has donated and tuned in this year already. We've still got lots of games left to play, so stick around through Sunday morning at 9 a.m. CST!
The marathon is live. We're going to be playing for the next 72 hours. We hope you'll join us, chat, and consider donating! Thanks for tuning in.
Thanks for tuning in all weekend! We played over 50 games during this year's event and raised $2,660 for Child's Play! That brings our total amount raised over three years to almost $8,000!
We can't thank you enough for supporting this worthwhile cause and for tuning in to watch this year after year. We'll see you next year!
We've passed $2,000 thanks to over $700 in donations during Mike Sherry's Chrono Trigger run, which clocked in at 7 hours and 43 minutes!
Up now are two other Nintendo classics: Link to the Past and Super Metroid. Tune in and soak up the nostalgia with us.
Thanks to everyone who has donated so far and to everyone watching this weekend. Please donate if you can!
