Awesome Gamer Marathon for Cancer Prevention

 A recent  6-day online video gamer marathon raised $149,000 for the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

"About 90 people gathered, in shifts, at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center, in Chevy Chase, Md., to play video games around the clock for a good cause in the event called “Awesome Games Done Quick 2012.”
Participants completed 107 games for the event, which was watched by thousands of online viewers around the world through a live broadcast stream on the Speed Demos Web site, where they could donate. During that time, some 3,200 donors gave 5,850 times, with an average gift of about $25. (One donor contributed $3,500)," reports Philanthropy Today.
