The Social Network

keep in touch!

The idea of doing a marathon on your own sofa is a bit weird, we know.  Last years Sick Kids Save Point found many participants struggling to stay awake and motivated during their marathons, especially if they were attempting the 24 hours of gaming on their own.  This is why the social networks are really important in Sick Kids Save Point – they keep you connected with all the other participants.  Let people know what your playing, how your doing and it lets us all know that you haven’t fallen asleep!
Make sure before you start then that you are following us on Twitter or through our facebook page, and if you are thinking of streaming your marathon live, let us know so we can post the links up here.

Below you can see what the community are talking about on twitter, using the #sksp hashtag…
