'Shaq Fu' to raise money for sick kids

ROSEBURG, Ore. -- There's a charity event unlike any you've ever seen coming up this weekend. It's called 'Shaq Fu for the Shorteez.'

Employees at Video Games Plus in Roseburg have agreed to play the nearly two-decade old game that features Shaquille O'neil in martial arts style fights.

Here's the sweeping kicker: They are playing for two straight days.

While they're playing what they call, "one of the worst games ever," they'll have raffles, prize drawings, and more.

The crew is hoping to raise $5,000 for Child's Play, a charity that donates games and electronic devices to sick children in hospitals to help pass the time.

Organizers say they wanted to give back, while giving gamers a good name. Kris Robinson, the manager of Video Games Plus, hopes that people will help them give back. "Gamers, you know, we're good people, and this is our opportunity to give back to the community," he said. "All of the money that we actually get from our event is going to go to children's hospitals in Oregon."

The Shaq Fu smack down will start on Friday morning at 10:00 a.m., and will run through Sunday morning.
