$1500 in Donations Sought for Child’s Play

Parax of The Sonic Center e-mailed TSSZ to tell us of a six day fundraiser the website will hold beginning tomorrow.  The effort looks to raise $1500 for Child’s Play, the charity run by Penny Arcade that helps sick children in hospitals.

Nearly every Sonic title will be covered in the effort, as will other related games such as NiGHTS and Puyo Puyo.  Those around during the Puyo Puyo, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing and Sonic 4: Episode II leg of the race will have an opportunity to join in on the playtime via PC and XBOX Live.  Those interested in the latter must have a Gold account.  Time will also be carved out to play various Sonic fan games on Saturday evening.

To watch the stream and donate, click here.  Already, more than $100 have been given toward the cause.  The marathon will officially kick off tomorrow at 2PM ET.
