The 4th annual Mario Marathon starts tomorrow at 11:00 am ET at http://www.mariomarathon.com/

First of all, I'm not associated with this event in any way besides being a huge fan of what these guys do.. but I posted about it last year and several of you were interested, so I thought I would give a heads up that this year's event is already here!

These guys play Mario games on Nintendo... you watch live stream of their living room and their TV... and it's surprisingly far more entertaining than it sounds.

They do it to raise money for Child's Play Charity - which donates games, books, toys to hospitals all over the world. Their aim is to make a hospital stay a little less scary and a little less boring! Good cause.

They've currently raised over $12000 and the event hasn't even started yet. Last year they raised over $80000 total.

So again, their website is http://www.mariomarathon.com and there you can watch (once it starts), read more, chat with others, and donate if you so choose. It will definitely last all weekend, and probably a good chunk of next week too - so tune in if you have some time to kill over the next few days!

Just a little bump as the event is about to go live.

BTW, if anyone chooses to donate after coming from fsu ... it will automatically keep track of how many donations have come from here.

:) Not much interest this year I guess. Just one last post to say that the Marathon is just about done (will finish tonight) and they've raised over $100K
