TheSpeedGamers have begun their annual Zelda marathon, raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The marathon began last night.
The group marathon highlights glitch-free speed runs of each Legend of Zelda game. One of the early runs in the marathon last night was a favorite of mine, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. After only a few hours, over $3,000 dollars had been raised for charity.
The schedule for Saturday includes speed runs of Twilight Princess, Link’s Awakening DX, and the Philips CD-i game Wand of Gamelon.
You can watch the live stream on Twitch. The marathon began on June 24 and will run through July 1.
Donations are accepted online, or you can donate by purchasing one of two exclusive t-shirts from Fangamer. Fangamer will donate $10 of the purchase price to St. Judes. The shirts are designed around the marathon theme of Hyrule vs. Lorule with one shirt depicting Princess Zelda and the other depicting Ganon.
