Video gaming marathon benefits Children's Miracle Network

Posted: Updated:

Selah, WASH.--Video games will be played for 24 straight hours, and it's all for a good cause.

The Reckin' Crue, a local club for motorcyclists, organized this fundraiser in Selah.

All money raised will go towards the Children's Miracle Network, a program run by the Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital.

The money helps families pay for their children's medical treatment.

"We want to help them because they're our future," said Jeff Larin. "Without them, we have no future."

Participants hope to raise $2,000.

They started playing games Saturday at noon, and won't stop till lunch time Sunday.

Moulin Brew has donated two cases of Red Bull, and Speakeasy Sports and Spirits are supplying food.

The event is taking place at Goju-Ryu Karate in Selah, and people can drop off donations anytime.
