‘Nerds For NAMI’ Annual Gaming Marathon For Charity

What is Nerds for NAMI? A couple of years ago, some friends and I started Nerds for NAMI, a 24-hour video game and variety show marathon to raise money for the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Now in its third year, Nerds for NAMI will return this weekend for a gaming marathon followed by a live comedy show at The Crowd Theater in Chicago.

Naturally, all of this will be live-streamed over Twitch, so we invite you to check us out and watch us play games and try out best to stay awake. After that stick around for the variety show, which will feature improv, sketch comedy, and a bunch of other humorous shenanigans. All the proceeds raised will go to NAMI Mercer in memory of Kathie Formoso. NAMI is the nation’s largest grass-roots organization dedicated to improving the lives of people suffering from mental illness.

Sounds intriguing. How can I watch?

The whole entire event, gaming marathon and comedy show, will be live-streamed from Saturday, April 27th at 9pm CDT to Sunday, April 28th at 9pm right here on Twitch.

For those of you in the greater Chicago area (or who feel like visiting the Windy City for a spell), you can come to see the show live at The Crowd Theater on Sunday, April 28th from 7-9pm.  The Crowd Theater is located at 3935 N Broadway, Chicago, Illinois.
