About

Distant Star Cares is an annual video game speedrun charity marathon held in Upstate South Carolina organized by a community of speedrunners from around the world united in our initiative to help sick & disabled children get the emotional & physical care that they desperately need.

Distant Star Cares EXTRA LIFE will be raising money for Prisma Health Children's Hospital in Greenville SC.
