As Britt announced last week in his marathon wrap-up, we’ve announced that our Resident Evil Marathon in October will be raising money for Direct Relief International! Direct Relief is a fantastic organization, and we’re really looking forward to working with them again for this event.
Additionally, we’re SO EXCITED to announce that Capcom has agreed to work with us for this marathon for both prizes and promotion. Capcom has always been very good to us when we’ve needed them, and we’re thrilled to be working so closely with them again.
Our Resident Evil Marathon is shaping up to be something special, and we can’t wait for October 13 (Friday the 13th!) to get here!
Check out the reveal trailer for the marathon below, and we’ll see you soon! Follow us on Twitter @TheSpeedGamers for all of the updates on the marathon as we get them, and be sure to check out our Twitch page at http://twitch.tv/thespeedgamers to see us hosting some of our marathon attendees as they practice their games!

Our 2017 Final Fantasy Marathon for St. Jude will take place from July 14 through July 19 at http://twitch.tv/TheSpeedGamers! It begins at 6pm CDT on Friday, July 14, so mark your calendars! As always, all proceeds from the event will go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, so make plans to join us in raising money for this great cause!
We have more exciting plans to reveal over the next five weeks, so keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages for all of the details!
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases, and they are one of the best organizations out there. We’ve worked with St. Jude many times over the past nine years, and we can’t wait to get to work raising money for them again!
We’re counting down to our 2017 Final Fantasy Marathon for St. Jude on July 14 (less than 15 weeks from now!), so we’re looking back at some of our favorite memories from TSG’s previous Final Fantasy Marathons!
In this one, Apple reminds us of the time that the TSG Community came together to raise over $3,000 just to name a rat-faced character after Chase.
