Sam Bryant, Super Marathon 64 Organizer

Sam is a college student in Georgia who loves helping people and playing video games. Inspired by “Zeldathon,” Sam decided to organize a gaming marathon benefiting No Worries Now. The result was “Super Marathon 64,” a hugely successful fundraiser during which Sam and his friends live-stream their play of Nintendo 64 games to their website, www.supermarathon64.net, 24 hours a day for a week at a time. Each marathon involves players celebrating fundraising milestones by doing things like shaving their heads or dying their hair pink — both of which Sam has done for No Worries Now’s benefit. Each fundraiser has raised thousands of dollars for No Worries Now.
