TL;DR - 24 hours of non-stop gaming for Mind, Manchester. In memory of Aaron McCaffrey aka, Aaron Anarchy, Ajay, Shinoda and Jericho among many others including Dad.

Most of my closer friends and family will know the reason why we're doing this but for those that don't...

Aaron was one of my closest and longest friends who sadly passed recently. This was due, in part, to the lack of assistance he had with the depression, anxiety & addiction he was suffering from.

Raising money for mind is just one way we can honor his memory. Another way is by doing a marathon, but because he probably ran a total of 1500 meters in his entire life it will be a marathon doing something he loved. Gaming. 

So for 24 hours starting at around 10am on Saturday the 22nd we will be gaming non-stop for this cause.

There will be two of us (myself and Nico) doing this, so hopefully between the two of us we can spread the word. If anybody would like to join us on this epic quest then feel free. Just set up a twitch account, or an alternative, and send me your username, I'll add it to the list below.

Primarily, thanks for reading. Doubly grateful for any donations.
