That's a lotta coins!

Exactly one month ago we told you about a Mario event run by The Speed Gamers, and now we bring you news from another Mario Marathon, this time raising money for the Child's Play charity.

In just over 52 hours of play the event has raised over $33,000, easily eclipsing 2009's total of $29,082. At time of writing the gamers are taking on some of Super Mario Sunshine's trickier stages, so consider heading to the Mario Marathon site and donating a few dollars to a good cause to make it all worthwhile.
