You may remember that, last year, I took part in a 24 hour gaming marathon called Sick Kids Save Point. It was organised in an effort to raise money for the Sick Kids Hospital in Edinburgh (which it did a pretty damn good job of).
I had a tremendous time before, during and after the event and it was great to see folk on the forum coming together to help out with suggestions and donations. Because of this, I raised over £1500 which contributed towards the overall amount of £21,000. The involvement of the people on here is something that I’ll never forget.
Here’s a link to the thread I created at the time:SKSP 2011
SKSP is happening again in October this year, the hospital will always need funding to continue the work they tirelessly carry out and the organisers are keen to continue supporting it in any way they can.
I’ve decided not to take part, although I am still raising funds for the hospital via a climb up Ben Nevis (quite the task for a fat lad), but I had so much fun doing last year’s that I’d thought I’d turn to you, the forum, in the hope that someone steps up to take part and becomeSKSP GRcade Representative 2012
(think of it as Dick Grayson taking on the mantle of Batman while Bruce Wayne was lost in time or something*).
Saying that, it doesn’t just have to one person, it would be even better if a few people all got together to take part.
Feel free to ask any questions in the thread or via PM, the SKSP site has links for setting up your JustGiving page and you’ll find plenty info about the last two marathons.http://www.sickkidssavepoint.org/
*I am in no way comparing myself to Bruce Wayne or Dick Grayson.
**Actually, maybe Dick Grayson, because he was awesome as Batman. But I am definitely not comparing myself to Bruce Wayne.
***Wait, no, hold on. Bruce Wayne is awesome too.
****Sod the comparisons, I am Batman.
