Event Start Date: 03/06/2011 Event Start Time: 12:00 Approx Event Duration: 24 hours Fundraising Goal: £500
The SavePatches team along with special guest gamer extraordinaire Simon Butler will be holding a gaming marathon in aid of Ataxia UK. The event will begin at midday on 3rd June 2011 and last 24 hours straight (toilet breaks allowed, but frowned upon), it will include games past and present on various consoles.

We are raising money for Ataxia, an incurable condition which affects the muscles and heart. Millie Mae was diagnosed with the condition in 2010 and now faces a race against the clock.

We have also organised a meet up on the event page at 7pm GMT, for people affected by Ataxia and anyone else who wants to chat, interact and join in.

You can view the video for the event at

At various points during the marathon we will be playing Rock Band. We will also be taking suggestions for songs to play, with the 850+ tracks available for you to choose hopefully we will have something for everyone! You can view the track list at and message us with requests!

We are trying to get 500 people to donate £1 to this worthy cause, hence the fundraising goal of £500 (all mathematicians here at SavePatches). Of course if you feel compelled to donate more than £1 then be our guest, every amount is very much appreciated and will go towards helping Ataxia sufferers such as Millie Mae.

We will be available to chat throughout the marathon and answer any questions you may have, or perhaps you would like to suggest games to play, or even comment on how rubbish we are at computer games.

We hope you’ll tune in, follow our progress and help us raise money for this very worthy cause.
