Gamewagon Kamikaze run for Special Effect

In a few days the Gamewagon team will be undergoing a tortuous event to raise money for a very special charity. Special Effect are a team that help give everyone the opportunity to play video games, regardless of any disability and they create magic moments in peoples lives. Please, take a moment to read and learn a little more about what Special Effect does below and then there is a link to make a donation to spur us on to complete our Kamikaze event.

It is difficult to put in words the special moments that Special Effect create in peoples lives and what it means to the children and adults that they help have experiences that we take for granted. Watch these videos to learn a little more;

We will be putting ourselves through one of the most physically demanding experiences of our lives this Sunday, May 19th: The Pippingford Kamikaze 2013. It’s a nightmarish 8 mile slog through a sea of mud, hills, ponds, lakes, and rivers. We are up for it but in reality we are dreading it.

Here are some of the obstacles that we will be looking to overcome;

Raising Money for Special Effect
1. 15km of countryside (Longest run of the year for us so far).

2. The Bog – A river of oozing mud.

3. Barbed wire swamp crawl – Does what it says on the tin!

4. Dark Tunnels – Buried tubes so dark that the devil himself would not enter.

5. Grease Wall & Balance Beam – Once greased up you then balance or fall to oblivion.

We hope that you will make our suffering worthwhile by donating a few pounds to help this small, amazing charity help even more disabled gamers.  Their work is truly life-changing. And the more money we raise, the more lives they can change.

So please donate whatever you can and then we promise not to come round to clean off at your place afterwards!!!
