    This year I'm doing a 17 Hour Game-a-thon for the MS Trust with my kids on the 23rd August in Blue and Silver wigs. We did it last year for 16 hours for the MS Society so this year we thought we would add an hour :( . I'm an MS suffer myself as I can't do runs or bike rides etc, I might as well do something im good at ( well I say good). As an MS Suffer I might as well support a charity that may help future MS suffers as there isn't a cure for the condition at the moment.

    We will be gaming on the Xbox one and streaming on Twitch (Twitch , last year we mostly played Diablo 3 as its good for 3 players. So who knows we might even finish it this year.

    If you have a spare few pennies please donate at Steve Cassidy is fundraising for Multiple Sclerosis Trust

    As we now have 2 Xbox ones we will be able to play more games as last year we were stuck with 3 player games on one screen.

    If you wanna join us in a game my Gamertag is Los Cassidy and my eldest son is Hemanschin

    Cheers for taking the time to read this thread

    Only a few weekends away now. 3 blue tinsel wigs are now here, I think wearing them for 17 hours could be more of a challenge [emoji39]. I've raised £270 up to now which is cool. Now I need to figure what games to play, and hope the spasticity in my righthand calms down otherwise it's gonna be a long day, and get some Monster Zeros in to keep me awake.

    Good luck with the marathon! I'm a sufferer of m.e. and my partner has m.s. (a good combination eh!), I couldn't imagine playing the xbox for such a long period of time and can understand the discomfort you suffer all in the name of a good cause. Plenty of fluids and remember to stretch your legs to avoid dvt x

    How is it going physically?

    Enjoying the varied games from what I managed to catch, never seen the baseball or wrestling games before at all. They looked like good co op games.
