Project Fundraising OniLink Edition is an online marathon taking place from April 5-7 and fundraising to assist OniLink86 with his medical bills. You can submit up to 5 runs and submissions will be closed on March 20. The schedule will be out shortly after submissions close. For more information about Project Fundraising and the marathon cause, read the section below titled, "Project Fundraising Info and Cause"

Project Fundraising Info and Cause: Project Fundraising - or PJFR for short - is an online marathon full of speedruns that raises money for people in the speedrun community, be it viewer or runner, who are in financial need such as medical bills, medicine, job lost, home lost etc.

PJFR OniLink Edition is the fifth marathon in the PJFR marathon series and is fundraising for OniLink86. Recently he was affected by a sudden case of disabling vertigo and has been unable to work as a result of it. His doctors don't fully understand why he is experiencing this illness. Additionally, he needed to have his gallbladder removed due to a case of gallstones. These medical costs have put a burden on him and his fiance. By submitting runs and donating, you will help OniLink pay for medical bills and assist with living expenses.
