Gameathon 2024

Join our challenge to complete 43 hours of gaming throughout September.

Whether you choose to play a video game or a board game, alone or with friends, your fundraising can help us achieve our goal of making Sheffield the best place to be a young person!

How it works

  1. Sign up to take part in Sheffield’s first Gameathon challenge.
  2. Decide how you want to play. This could be online, table-top or arcade. You can be part of a team or enter solo. The choice is yours!
  3. Set up your JustGiving page (we’ll give you lots of guidance, don’t worry).
  4. Tell family and friends, post on social media and spread the word. Let’s get the whole city taking part!
  5. In September, the challenge begins. 43 hours of gaming fun awaits…

How you can game


Complete 43 hours over as many sessions as you want during September.


Complete 43 hours in one session (making sure you take regular breaks to eat, drink, sleep, and use the bathroom! More information on safe gaming can be found here).


Complete 43 hours by relaying with other people in your team.

By signing up to take part, not only are you supporting an amazing charity, you’ll also gain access to exclusive workshops, game-themed events, and have the opportunity to win some really cool prizes!
