Proceeds from the gaming marathon will benefit Direct Relief, a humanitarian aid charity that provides medical assistance to people and communities globally, without regard to politics or religion.

Matt Hadden, the marathon organiser, said: “Khaos Control Solutions is thrilled to support Direct Relief and its efforts in the United States and worldwide to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies.

“Direct Relief is ranked among the top non-profits in the world and we want to make sure that they can continue doing amazing work.”
