On Saturday, March 18th, Insomniac Gamers will be hosting a Spring Charity Event for Extra Life
, an organization that helps collect donations for hospitals in need.
After polling chat and streamers, the theme of the Spring Charity will be our first ever...
Metal Gear Solid Series Marathon!
Saturday, March 18th, 2017 @ 10 AM, EST
thru Sunday, March 19th @ 10 AM, EST (24 hours)
"hue hue, snek es numero uno, muy bueno~..."
IG streamers will together try to complete a number of Metal Gear Solid games in a 24 hour span. We hope during that time you'll come in and watch us get through Hideo Kojima's bizarre gaming masterpiece, while also visiting our Extra Life charity page to share some love with some people who need help. The event is planned to run all day, so stick it out for the long haul or stop by for your favorite title.
Schedule of events: What is Extra Life? "Extra Life unites thousands of players around the world in a 24 hour gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $30 million for local CMN Hospitals."What's the goal?
Sat. 8 AM – 10 AM: Metal Gear Solid 3 “SPEED RUN” w/ HMBRGR + copilots
Sat. 10 AM – 4 PM: Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker w/ DocTabasco
Sat. 4 PM – Sun. 2 AM: Metal Gear Solid V w/ Lardy, Fperson, RDMT, and POWER
Sun. 2 AM - Sun. 4 AM: Metal Gear Online w/ Chat (and whoever is available)

IG hopes to raise $500
in donations toward Connecticut Children's Medical Center
, where money will go towards helping families pay for treatment, medication, and comforts that make life easier while away from home. Donations through IG's page can be made prior to, during, and after the event - the Spring Charity Event is a day focused on drawing attention to this hospital in need, but IG's help is not limited to our marathon.
If you'd like to somehow participate in spreading the word, contact me through any outlet and I'll get in touch with you post-haste.
Hope to see you guys there!
