Sonic to Run for Charity in London Run 2011

Sonic’s favourite thing is running, right? So it only makes sense that the blue blur does so for charity! A rather nice chap called Dave Moran is signed up to run the Asics British 10K London Run 2011 this Sunday, and he’s dressing up as everyone’s favourite hedgehog to raise money for the SpecialEffect charity.

SpecialEffect is a charity that recently hit the spotlight for its brilliant work in allowing disadvantaged children to explore and enjoy interactive entertainment. The organisation had a stand at last year’s Eurogamer Expo, where it was demonstrating a racing game that can be controlled simply with a person’s eye movement.

A truly inspiring cause, and one that resonated with Dave when he decided to take on the London Run. “I first found out about SpecialEffect at the Eurogamer Expo 2010. It didn’t take long for me to see how special a charity they were,” he writes on his JustGiving page. “For these children, the majority of computer games are simply too quick or too difficult to play, and we can help them and their parents to find out which games they CAN play, and how to adapt those games that they can’t.”

Dave is aiming for a target donation of £250 – amazingly, he has passed that and is currently at £429! Let’s give Dave some support for a great charity and see how far we can get that total. If you want to donate a sum of change to the cause, just head to Dave’s JustGiving page.
