ExtraLives New Years Eve Charity Super Mario Marathon

Extra-Lives-Mario-MarathonExtraLives is currently hosting a Mario game marathon raising funds for Save The Children by playing their way through the entire series over a few days. Starting at Super Mario Bros and working their way up to Super Mario Galaxy 2, ExtraLives hope to to raise $5,000 by the end of the event.

The games being played are currently being streamed live across the Internet via Ustream. The live broadcast can be watched on their website for free, in which both teams taking part in the event can be seen competing to complete each game first. As of writing the group effort have managed to raise 94% of the $5,000 target, while only halfway through the list of games at Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.

Next up on the list is the fans favourite Super Mario 64,  before making way to the Nintendo GameCube for Super Mario Sunshine and the Super Mario Galaxy games on the Nintendo Wii. ExtraLives have also decided to expand the length of the event, to play spin off Mario games not included in the main series between each title on the list. Hotel Mario for the Philips CDi is expected to make an appearance too, should their console be in working order.

So if you're feeling rather generous this New Year's Eve or fancy watching the teams tackle the Mario games chronologically, head over to ExtraLives now.
