About

We are a group of Univerity students who love gaming and charity. We decided it would be best if we put the two together and raised some money for children in hospitals. Play 2 Raise was founded in 2011 by Josh Stelting as a group who's goal is to raise money for charity. All donations go directly to Child's Play Charity, the Play 2 Raise team does not handle the money in any way. We love chatting with viewers during the marathon! You guys are what helps keep us going, even in the late hours of the night.

Play 2 Raise is based out of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. To date, we have raised $7296.00 for charity, and each year gets better and more exciting. We are always looking for more ways to entertain you guys, so if you have any suggestions, be sure to let us know. Also don't forget that if you can't donate, telling your friends can be just as or even more effective, so spread the word!

The Man

Josh Stelting

Age: 23
Member of Play 2 Raise: 5th Year
About: Josh founded Play 2 Raise in 2011. He deals with the technical side of things such as web design and stream setup. He is also known to pay far too much attention to chat when he should be paying attention to the game.

The Man

Laura Lavallee

Age: 21
Member of Play 2 Raise: 3rd Year
About: Laura enjoys pyjamas, long walk on the beach, and slaying innocent goombas.

The Man

Steven Foster

Age: 22
Member of Play 2 Raise: 3rd Year
About: Steven is probably one of the most compelling people in the room to watch play Mario games. This is due to his tactic of yelling at the tv, whilst playing, often in a fit of rage, passion, or sheer surprise. Be sure to have sound set to low when he is playing.

The Man

Tyler White

Age: 21
Member of Play 2 Raise: 2nd Year
About: Tyler’s vast knowledge of deep Mario lore and mechanics are sure to propel the stream into video game history... Wait, that’s not right. Have you even PLAYED a Mario game before? Oh. On your Gameboy Colour. Perfect. Huh. Why are you even in this stream? Ummmm… Let’s just go ahead and say “Colour Commentary.” That sounds good.

The Man

Misha Whittingham

Age: 19
Member of Play 2 Raise: 2nd Year
About: In addition to his magical noseholes, Misha is also a superb expert at crash bandicoot and is able to identify a sloth from several feet.

The Man

Kyle Turner

Age: 20
Member of Play 2 Raise: 2nd Year
About: "I bring the bro. It's pretty much my whole purpose here."

The Man

Tahani Peters

Age: 19
Member of Play 2 Raise: 2nd Year
About: Tahani studies psychology, doodles in the margins of her notes, and had a crush on Milo from Atlantis: The Lost Empire when she was twelve.

The Man

Jesse Goerzen

Age: 21
Member of Play 2 Raise: 1st Year
About: He does weird things with his face when he thinks no one’s looking. Pretty good at mario (though he’s never finished a game), pretty great at tech (though his website is empty), and working towards making video games (though hasn’t actually done that yet); so basically a lazier version of Josh.

The Man

Joshua Furrer

Age: 19
Member of Play 2 Raise: 1st Year
About: This Josh is new to Mario Marathon, this should cause a great deal of chaos whenever someone calls the name Josh. It will be more confusing when everyone calls him by a multitude of names to try and differentiate between the two.

Prizes
