This weekend you’re invited to Crystals For Life — a Final Fantasy series speed-running marathon hosted by a slew of Final Fantasy enthusiats from the speed-running community. They’ve all braved the winter to come together in Edmonton, Alberta to raise money for juvenile diabetes research in hopes to cure and prevent the disease from impacting many young lives. Crystals for Life has set the goal at $5000, with proceeds directly benefiting JDRF Canada.
Many Final Fantasy classics are on tap, as displayed in the above trailer, and the event kicks off at 5:45pm MDT (GMT-6) tonight. If you’re busy or out and about tonight, don’t despair! The stream will run all weekend and into the workweek with Final Fantasy VI as the finale on Tuesday night. Drop in, drop out, but make sure to tune in and say hello! You’ll also have the chance to win some top-tier Final Fantasy swag, so don’t miss it!
You can watch Crystals for Life here; the crew have provided a full schedule and more information on how to donate to the cause.
See you there!
