Zelda: Breath of the Wild Marathon for buildOn

Hey guys,

This is (obviously) not Sierra-related, but I wanted to let everyone know that the charity group in involved with, TheSpeedGamers, will be hosting a 90-hour marathon of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild at midnight on launch day, March 3. This will be our 42nd marathon, and it'll be celebrating our 9-year anniversary in addition to the launch of BotW and the Nintendo Switch.

The marathon's going to be raising money for buildOn, a great charity that promotes literacy and education across the world, and our event in particular will be raising funds to build a school in Mali in West Africa (here's a link to an article they wrote about us back in December for our previous event: https://www.buildon.org/2016/12/members ... eedgamers/).

buildOn is a really fantastic organization, and it should be a really fun time for the viewers. If anyone gets a chance, I encourage you to check out the event at http://twitch.tv/thespeedgamers from March 3-6.

Here's a trailer for the marathon I cut together this morning:
"I'm gonna wake up tomorrow and keep trying to do good and so are you and nobody gets to vote on that."
