Down Under Team Founder Joseph Scrivens says the inspiration for the Charity Marathon came from GuardianCon 2018, which has a week long, charity-focused stream dedicated to helping a local hospital. Down Under Team already pride themselves on creating a grassroots community and working with BeyondBlue to encourage streams to raise money, they aim to raise a total of AUD$5,000.
GG EZ Bar in Melbourne have also offered to contribute, creating a special drink for the stream. Available on August 18 only, you’ll be able to enjoy while watching the stream live on the screens at GG EZ.
Down Under Team Charity Marathon will run from Monday August 13th at 12am running for 7 days straight and ending on Sunday August 19th at 11:59pm. You can check out their lineup below.
