We’re pleased to say that Scotland’s 24 hour videogames marathon is now at sickkidssavepoint.org, as you might have noticed above. This means you can email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, just in case there’s any questions… Play Games. Save Kids. Win Stuff. What else would you need to know?
We are delighted to announce that local game maestros Rockstar North, creators of Grand Theft Auto, have again decided to back Sick Kids Save Point. Last year would not have been possible without their incredible support – indeed many Rockstar employees took part!
Watch this space for details on the prizes that Rockstar have donated – Raise £100 in sponsorship for your marathon and you will be entered into the prize draw automatically. Other companies have offered prizes too, and we will announce them in due course… Play Games. Save Kids. AND Win Stuff. Pretty Good eh?
We’re looking forward to the new Green lantern movie, and to celebrate we’ve done our own XBOX/Green lantern mash up… Just to show that gamers can be heroes too – raising vital money for kids by playing games past the fun barrier.

So you’ve picked up a flyer, and you want to know what this is all about, right?
Sick Kids Save Point is a 24 hour gaming marathon organised on behalf of the Sick Kids Friends Foundation, in which gamers attempt to play games for 24 hours straight to raise money for the charity, benefiting patients and families at the Sick Kids Hospital, Edinburgh. Under 18s accumulate the 24 hours between a group.
WHERE? – In your own homes, or in groups.
WHEN? – This October, at some point over the weekend of the 7th-9th. We all do it together so we can support each other on facebook and twitter (and make sure we haven’t dozed off!)
