Announcing the Zelda Marathon 2011!
A bunch of students from the UK who have some spare time to devote to their gaming addictions are hosting a Zelda Marathon to celebrate the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword release and hopefully raise some money for GamesAid a UK based Charity!
Charity Registration No. 1081706
GamesAid act as a broker for several UK non-profits so when you donate you are infact helping all of these charities:
Winston’s Wish - http://www.winstonswish.org.uk/
The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability (RHN) – http://www.rhn.org.uk/
SpecialEffect – http://www.specialeffect.org.uk/
Action For Kids (AFK) – http://www.actionforkids.org/
The Willow Foundation – http://www.willowfoundation.org.uk/
The team were inspired by the generosity of the guys at mariomarathon.com and extralives.org who have ran successful video game marathons beforehand and are very pleased to announce our own Zelda Marathon charity event mirroring thier efforts.
In order to be a tad more unique we aim to begin one week before the currently TBA release date of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and we are only playing using the original consoles and game cartridges/discs; the reasoning for this is so that our adventure can truely pay homage to the previous games in the series and take us on multiple quests to claim the Blade of Evil’s Bane and rescue the Princess Zelda through the many various depictions of Hyrule that we physically can, all the way from the original 1986 NES game “The Legend of Zelda” to.. providing we time it right the latest Wii installment in the series “The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword” all the while collecting the spare rupees that our viewer’s can spare from their giant’s wallets for GamesAid.
