Brandon Beedon, 22 of Colchester, committed to a 24-hour gaming marathon from Friday to Saturday in order to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

He played PC games like Rocket League and Dota 2 during the thumb-aching challenge, which was streamed live online and had 300 real-time viewers at one point.

Brandon, who claims that gaming is beneficial to his mental health, also tried his hand at Bloons TD 6, Outlast, and Crab Game.

Brandon also accomplished a number of gaming objectives as he traveled through a variety of digital universes and internet worlds.

Despite the fact that playing games for hours sounds like fun, Brandon admits that the sleep-deprived session wasn’t easy, but determination and caffeine helped him get through it.

He said it was exhausting, but it was well worth it and a lot of fun, and that it tested his endurance. He said he considered stopping around 4 a.m. until 5 a.m., but he felt compelled to keep going because he only had six hours left and at least six Red Bulls.

There was also a time when he caught the attention of another Twitch streamer, who hosted him and complimented him on his work and said it was great and for a great cause.

Brandon’s efforts raised just under £200 for MacMillan Cancer Support, which will be used to help and advise people who have been diagnosed with cancer.

Brandon said that while cancer has not personally affected him, he wanted to do it for a good cause and because he understands how cancer affects so many people. So it feels great to have raised the funds, and he wants to express his gratitude to those who helped him do so.
