You can take part at any time, any place.
Whether you form a team or go solo, stream your marathon on Twitch or just use it as an excuse to get together with friends online – there are so many ways to play, the choice is yours. Whichever way you take part, you have one clear objective – saving babies’ lives.
Let your friends and family know what you’re doing, so they can sponsor you and cheer you on – or maybe join in.
I was told about Game for GBSS by my Dad one day, and I then decided to participate in it and spend a day gaming to help raise money for GBSS. I chose to do this because my older sister Teresa died when she was just twelve hours old because of GBS, and I know how much this charity has helped my parents and others coping with loss and also to help raise awareness. I am happy that the money raised can go towards helping prevent other tragedies for families and to help raise awareness, and thank you to all of my sponsors.
