“Gamer Living” Goes 24-Hours Straight For Charity

ROYAL OAK (WWJ) – One local organization is using modern technology to help sick children.

Extra Life 2012 kicks off today with a simple premise: Play video games for 24-hours straight to raise money for a Children’s Miracle Network hospital.

“Gamer Living” is a national video game and technology website, with a team here in metro Detroit. This weekend they’re hosting a 24-hour online video game marathon, to help raise money for Beaumont’s Children’s Hospital — through the Children’s Miracle Network.

William Anderson is with Gamer Living and spoke to WWJ about the marathon event that began Saturday morning.

“For a lot of us, especially the three of us that are participating, at one point in time we’ve all been affected either personally or had relatives that have had to go to Beaumont Children’s Hospital and they do a fantastic job,” said Anderson.
