A group of Mansfield online video game players called Triple Speed Runners are taking part in a week-long Zelda Marathon in an effort to raise money for Child's Play Charity. As a charity group led by Matthew Clark, the group is raising money to buy toys and games for hospitalized children. When they first started doing marathons, they streamed three games at once in a speedy fashion, hence the name Triple Speed Runners. The group hosts marathons at different homes in Mansfield. Since 2009, TSR has raised over $10,000 for various charities.  TSR initially began raising money for DCOutreach, a charity focused on providing relief for families affected by the disease Dyskeratosis Congenita.  Clark's brother Josh is recovering from the disease, and was the inspiration for the group. Along with Child's Play and DCOutreach, Triple Speed Runners have also raised money for Architecture for Humanity and the World Food Programme.  The event is hosted at www.triplespeedrunners.com
