Speedrunners raise money for charity on Twitch

Calithon 2019 is taking place over the next three days. Never heard of Calithon? It’s an annual speedrunning marathon with proceeds from the event supporting charity.

The speedrunning marathon – which is being broadcast over Twitch – hopes to raise $50,000 for Direct Relief, an international humanitarian medical aid organization. As our sister site Video Game Streamers reported earlier today:

Calithon begins today and runs through Sunday night. Check out the full story here.
