Starting Saturday gamers will pick up their controllers and play for 25 straight hours to raise money for Dell Children's Hospital.
The gaming marathon supports Children's Miracle Network Hospitals like Dell Children's.
The Extra Life marathon starts at 8:00 AM. Gamers can play on any platform including mobile devices or board games. Participants can sign up for free and just need to get friends and family to sponsor their efforts.
Jack Patillo with Rooster Teeth Productions joined Good Day Austin to talk more about the event.
