From October 19th through the 26th, Gamers vs. MS will be doing a 168-hour charity video game marathon in support of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. Canada has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis in the world, with an estimated 1 in every 385 Canadians living with the disease. Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) that attacks myelin (the protective covering of the nerves), causing inflammation and damage. With that damage, nerve impulses can be completely disrupted. Currently, there is no cure. I’ll be taking part in the relay for six hours at 8 PM Eastern on October 23, on my own Twitch channel.

Correct response: What is Leadville, Colorado?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
The area around Leadville, Colorado was first thought to contain gold; however, the gold mining operations were hampered significantly by heavy sand, which turned out to be cerussite (a lead mineral with a high silver content); Leadville was founded in 1877 at the source of the cerussite.
In the 1980s, when the mines of the area fell on hard times, 100 contributors donated $1,000 each to open the National Mining Hall of Famer, in order to commemorate the work of miners and those who worked with natural resources. The former Leadville Junior High School houses the museum. Exhibits include a walk-through replica of an underground hard rock mine.
Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well! All proceeds from any “Keep The Faith And We’ll Win” shirt sold will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. To date, over $370 has been raised.)
