We need a marathon to celebrate the Metroid series!

This marathon is in the early planning stage! We have many things to discuss, but I'd also love to start hearing category suggestions. Here's a list of things I want to discuss in this thread. I have talked with runners from the different Metroid communities. Because the Metroid games are so short I think we could accept multiple categories for this marathon so we will atleast get a 24 hour long marathon!

Dates. Right now, I'm looking at sometime in April 2014.
Charity. Do we want a charity? Does any charity want us? I'd like suggestions.
Technical issues. Some recent online marathons have been great. There are some things I like and some I don't. I'd like to get more into depth with what people feel is best. I'm planning this to be online.
Games/Runners/Categories: These will have to be decided!

The Metroid Games in question:

1 Metroid:
2 Metroid II: Return of Samus
3 Super Metroid
4 Metroid Fusion
5 Metroid Prime
6 Metroid: Zero Mission
7 Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
8 Metroid Prime Pinball
9 Metroid Prime Hunters
10 Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
11 Metroid: Other M

Interested runners so far:


I wanted to write this here first, I will also make the same thread on SDA!
Thread title: 
Man, I would stay up 24 hours to watch this whole thing.  I would play in it too if I was actually good at these games heh.
If you need multiple MZM categories then (depending on the exact dates) I could maybe do one :)
The SDA thread is here and there's more activity there

Hey fellas! Can someone supply me with the metroid 2002 logo with a transparent background so we can use it for the marathoN?
