Good afternoon, everyone! You all are going to have to excuse me as I’m just in such high spirits right now!
So, if you didn’t know, I had my first of (hopefully) many Extra Life half marathons this past Saturday. I didn’t think much was going to come of it, but, boy, was I wrong.
First of all, a lot of people came out to see me attempt to finish Ori and the Blind Forest. I wasn’t able to finish before I took a break for lunch (delicious Papa Johns). I was, however, to push through and finish the game around 9:45pm. I might have a review for it a little later, but for right now, I’m going to tell you the game is amazing and I definitely want to share it with a couple of people. In that case, I recommend you stay tuned at the following sites for more information:
- MajorLinux’s Twitch Channel
- Extra Life RDU’s Twitch Channel
- Extra Life RDU’s Facebook Page
Also, I was able to raise $44 Saturday which is about 11% of my total goal of $400! That’s almost as much as I raised total back in 2012 ($50)! Special shoutouts to my sister and GameEnthus Podcast for helping out! Also, some money was raised when people followed my Twitch page during the stream! Shoutouts go to Truffffles, Sirrussr22T, Matt5252, and Valdazzar!
As I stated before, there will probably be more fundraising streams to come with more ways to contribute coming out as well! I’m actually looking at starting a huge one rather soon I should be able to run until the end of the year!
This is going to be a big year for me, for Extra Life, for all of us and I can’t wait for it! I also hope that everyone reading this is willing to join us!
