Gameplanet is teaming up with RawDLC, Kotaku, GameArena, AusGamers, and Geek Bomb in Sydney to play through Borderlands 2 in a single sitting to raise money for Child's Play, the gamers' charity for children.

The marathon kicks off at 6pm, Friday the 21st of September, AEST.

RawDLC writes: "Confirmed attendees include Ashlee Adams, avid gamer and current Australian Penthouse Pet of the Year (no, really). Industry personality Guy ‘Yug’ Blomberg and editorial director James Cullinane from Gameplanet, GameArena’s opinionated editor, Joab Gilroy. AusGamers’ editor Stephen Farrelly, Kotaku frontman Mark Serrels, the glamorous twosome from Geek Bomb, Maude Garrett and Rae Johnston, and Anthony O’Connor, FilmInk reviewer and writer of Australian horror film Redd Inc."

Throughout the event, there will be prizes, giveaways, and competitions, as well as special guest appearances. Every cent donated will go to Child's Play, a children's charity that seeks to improve the lives of children in hospitals around the world with the support of the gaming community and the games industry.

We're very excited to be a part of RawDLC's Borderlands 2 Child's Play drive, and we hope you can check in on our progress over the weekend.

Donation options will be available during the live-stream, but whether you're supporting with a donation or simply watching, we very much appreciate it!

Sting 'em, Randy!
