That’s just what’s happening with an upcoming event called “Hero for the Heart.” The event, which is dedicated to the memory of one Hero fan’s Guitar Hero-loving father, looks to raise $5,000 for the American Heart Association. The host of the event posted a very touching story on his official page on the American Heart Association’s website. You can read an excerpt below, and visit the page to donate.
To honor my dad, I have started Hero for the Heart: A Guitar Hero Record Setting Rock-a-thon to Benefit the American Hear Association. I will be playing Guitar Hero for 72 hours and break a Guinness World Record in the process. The goal is to raise $5,000 by the end of February. This event is not just for myself, friends and my family, but for anyone that is affected by heart disease. This event could potentially help many people that experience CHD, so please tell your friends about this. Rock with your heart, and you’ll never go wrong.
Since that message was posted, the host has announced that the 72-hour rock-a-thon will be taking place February 23rd – February 26th. If you have the means, please donate to this amazing cause and support a member of one of the strongest communities in gaming.
