Gamers might want to hold on to a few of their older games to have something to play through the annual 24-hour gaming marathon held by Extra Life. Gamers find sponsors, just as they would for a running or biking marathon for charity, and all proceeds go toward children in local hospitals through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Jeromy “Doc” Adams, founder of Extra Life, hopes to raise $1 million during this year’s marathon on Oct. 15. While he’s certainly happy about raising $760,000 throughout the past three years, he said he wants to raise even more by doing something he considers fun and easy.

“Who says that raising money for charity has to hurt or suck?” Adams said. “You don’t have to be locked in a coffin or buried alive to raise money.”
