Early today we had a chance to talk to Cody of Ideas Are Bulletproof Studios as he and the local Pokemon Go community prepare for the 24-hour Extra Life event that he’s put together.
Starting today at 6pm CST, Ideas Are Bulletproof Studios has partnered up with local store, Game Quest, to get the community involved in a charity event for Extra Life, and help raise funds for the Children’s Miracle Network.
So, how does one do a 24-hour Pokemon Go Walk-A-Thon? “Easy — you get the whole community involved”. Cody had shared that with Pokemon Go‘s popularity early on, there were many groups in the Amarillo area. The four big ones have been invited out to the event, and to participate in the 24-hour walk-a-thon, so a Pokemon Walk-A-Thon was easy to unite these groups for a great cause.
The groups will be walking up and down 6th Avenue, which features one gym right across from Game Quest, and fifteen Pokestops along the route. The live stream itself will be from inside Game Quest, where Cody and crew will be talking to participants, local personalities, as well other great people from the internet!

The event will be live streamed on Twitch and Youtube
