This year we’re going to go bigger and better! As well as the inevitable video games, we have loads of exciting plans including a “Red Tie Dinner”, the Mariothon Jukebox, Mario-themed Family Fortunes and Toad’s Used Yoshi Dealership. There will also be a live auction and a medley of competitions with some great prizes to be won!
The first Mariothon took place in 2011 and saw Mario running through every level of 9 different games whilst raising just shy of £2,500 for Starlight. Over 4,000 people logged on to watch, chat and donate, and we were overwhelmed by everyone's support – click below to see it for yourself!
Starlight Children’s Foundation is a charity that grants wishes to seriously and terminally ill children, as well as entertaining children in hospitals and hospices around the country.
The Mariothon couldn't take place without the generous help of our sponsors and affiliates; they provide us with their time and their ideas, as well as their products for our auctions and competitions. Find out more about them, and how you can work with the Mariothon, on our Sponsors and Affiliates page.
You can donate on our Virgin Money Giving site using a debit/credit card or PayPal - please have a look at our How to Donate page for more information on how to make sure your Mariothon account is credited with your Mariothon Jukebox credits!
All money goes straight to Starlight - we have no involvement with collecting or passing on donations.
