Just a reminder that on April 27th Breakfast Television Winnipeg will host a 12 hour video game marathon at Polo Park Centre Court in support of CancerCare Manitoba.
This is an opportunity for beginners and pro gamers to challenge their favourite local celebrities to video games that correspond with the celebrities’ skills i.e. play Tony Hawk with a local pro skateboarder. BT hosts Jeremy John and Drew Kozub will also be on-hand to “game out” and entertain the crowds as they fulfill a 12 hours of gaming challenge!
The video game marathon will also stream on a live webcast through the Breakfast Television Winnipeg website.
Not a gamer? Then participate in our 12 Hours of Prizing Marathon. Every hour throughout our gaming marathon you will have the chance to win 1 of 12 prizes that all have a minimum prize value of $200!
Donations towards CancerCare MB will be accepted on-site at Polo Park and online at btwinnipeg.ca.
Our Gaming for Good Celebrity Gamers– Fred Penner, Goldeyes, Colin Lambert (pro skateboarder, owner of Sk8 skates), Chip Damage (pro gaming group), and Sons of York!
