Epic Podcast, a show that describes itself as “A Podcast For the WoW (World of Warcraft) Community” will be hosting its 2nd Annual Child’s Play Marathon on Saturday, May 17th, 2014. The marathon will begin at 11AM EST and continue for 24 hours. Epic Podcast will live stream gameplay of different games made by Blizzard Entertainment. The purpose of the marathon is to raise money for Child’s Play, a charity that provides games and toys to hospitals worldwide.
This is Epic Podcast’s second charity streaming event. In 2013, the Epic Podcast crew had hoped to raise $1,000.00 during their first charity marathon and they exceeded that goal. This year, they’ve moved the goal up to $2,500.00. Epic Podcast explains its plans for this year’s marathon broadcast as:
“We will be playing Diablo 3, Hearthstone, World of Warcraft, Starcraft II Arcade and have a couple of flex runs for both Alliance and Horde. Viewers are encouraged to join in on the fun during the marathon and there will be random giveaways including pets, mounts, Ask Mr Robot premium accounts, and more!”
“If you would like to sign up for the Alliance or Horde flex run, please go to the blog section of our website for links to the OpenRaid signups. Deadline for Flex Signups will be May 10th.”
