We've cracked the quarter mark of our goal tonight!  A sincere THANK YOU to everyone who has donated to this point.  We're continuing to talk to friends, family, co-workers and....well....quite frankly anyone who we think might be interested in hearing about this great fundraising effort.

I'd like to take a moment to give people a "bigger picture" look at what my nephew is looking to accomplish.

To me, this is not about sitting in front of a screen for a full day, button mashing to his heart's content and zoning out on a Saturday.

This video gaming marathon is about doing our small part in raising money for the Alberta Children's Hospital.  It's about introducing my nephew to the benefits of doing something in a selfless manner - helping others.  It's about awareness - on all fronts.

To those who might be disappointed that this isn't a "fun run" or a skate-a-thon or a bake sale or a math olympics.....but rather an excuse for sitting and playing video games, I ask that you please take a moment to consider the bigger picture.

It's hard to overlook the $4 million Extra Life raised as a community in 2013.  That is a lot of money - going to a lot of hospitals - going to a lot of kids who desperately need it.

In my eyes, it's more than a worthwhile cause.

Let's share the message and get the word out about this marathon gaming day on Saturday, October 25.  For more information, visit

Thank you again for your time and donations.  It is very much appreciated.
