Last month GamePolitics covered Sarcastic Gamer’s Extra Life marathon, a charity event held for the benefit of Texas Children’s Hospital.
Despite tough economic times, Sarcastic Gamer now reports that gamers came through in a huge way, with $115,000 raised. A joint press release issued by the hospital and the website gives more details:
Thanks to your support, over $115,000 was raised to fight pediatric cancer. The funds raised will help provide critical dollars for research in childhood cancer as well as provide support to the families and patients being treated at Texas Children’s Cancer Center. And hopefully everyone had fun at the same time!
