AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 30, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Local internet marketing agency Geek Powered Studios will be hosting a "geek-a-thon" starting Friday November 1, and lasting for over 24 hours into the weekend. Geek Powered's employees will be playing video games for 25 hours straight to raise money and awareness for Austin's Dell Children's Hospital - part of the Children's Miracle Network that helps treat children with serious medical conditions, regardless of the family's ability to pay.

The event is part of a worldwide movement of gamers organized by the Extra-Life organization that in 2012 raised more than 2 million dollars for the worthy cause.

"We've talked about doing a charity gaming event for a while now," said John Leo Weber, a marketing specialist at Geek Powered Studios, "so when we heard about the world wide Extra-Life movement and how it benefits kids and families in our own community - we decided that this was the perfect opportunity."

Geek Powered Studios aims to raise $1,000 this week leading up to the event, and is asking for help from the community. "We're over half way there - we just need a final push to help get to our fundraising goal," said Weber.

All proceeds from donations go directly to help local children, and donations are tax deductible.

"It's a great feeling knowing that our gaming sessions are going to benefit such a worthy cause. I can't wait to game for 24 hours straight!" said the company's founding Geek and passionate gamer, Guillermo Ortiz.
