MDb news since 1996.
Adam Maiolo of Penguins Marathons contacted us to let us know that they will be hosting a Metroid Marathon on this Friday, June 1st, starting at 7:00PM EST. The marathon will go on until they complete all 11 Metroid games. The group consists of 8 men, all dedicated to raising money for Big Brothers Big Sisters St. Catharines - Thorold & District, a Canadian-based non-profit charity.
The group promises to stream the entire event live from their site, as well as some fun and entertainment, (including prizes) for the viewers when goals are reached. Their current end goal is $4000.
Watch the epic trailer below:
On behalf of the Metroid Database I'd like to wish Adam and the rest of the guys at Penguins Marathons the best of luck on the event and commend them for their generosity! This event is completely powered by folks like you, the internet community, so if you're feeling generous, head over to Penguins Marathons this Friday and send 'em a few bucks.
