This annual Third Party Event is run by Adam Maiolo and Penguins Marathons.
OUR 8TH ANNUAL ZELDA MARATHON WAS ANOTHER SUCCESS
Thank you to Adam and the gang for another week of endless fun and hyjinks! Thanks to their efforts and YOUR help, Zelda proudly raised just over $6,400.00!
Imagine dedicating yourself to playing video games 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with your closest friends while supporting Canada’s only Mentoring Charity? BEST TIME EVER! Raising money for the children and youth in St. Catharines, Thorold, and Niagara-on-the-Lake was never so much fun.
Join the gang as they broadcast live – 24 hours a day, see their game screen, chat with the players, and donate. They even set fundraising goal punishments to keep the marathon entertaining.
This non-profit group focuses on connecting the community with the entertainment world while giving back to their community. They came up with the idea after learning about a Mario Marathon in Indiana that raised $29,000.00. When this started, they had a core of 5 friends playing 7 titles from the popular Zelda video game series back to back without stopping. Their passion has started the best party of the year! Now friends travel from all over Canada and take time off work to continue the tradition.
