‘Mario Marathon’ returns this June

8:30 pm EDT, May 29, 2012

Has it been a year already? The marathon for charity of Nintendo’s most famous game is set to start June 22.

If you’re unfamiliar with the event, Mario Marathon is a group that live-streams a playthrough of Mario titles for Child’s Play charity. For every donation goal they meet, they play more levels and more games.

The event has no time-limit; as long as the donation levels are met, they’ll keep playing.

The event raised $112,675 for Child’s Play last year and has already raised $3,600 for this year’s marathon.  For all levels to be played in the year’s Mario Marathon, donations must meet at least $124,565.00.

Head over to the event’s web site to learn more and donate early.
