Extra Life
     

Looking for an extra great way to help kids?

Extra Life unites thousands of players around the world in a 24-hour gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Since 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $22 million for local CMN Hospitals, including Children’s Health. Extra Life works just like a fundraising walk or run, but you don’t need to leave the comfort of your living room to participate. Simply register to play games for the kids at Children’s Health and ask your family and friends for support. Then challenge yourself to play all 24 hours in one day, in one weekend, or over several days before the main event. While many people choose to play video games, you can play whatever you’d like—tabletop games, card games, basketball—anything! Extra Life is all about doing something fun, challenging yourself to do it for a longer period of time, and ultimately raising lifesaving funds for kids in need. Extra Life begins whenever you want it to! Just find a date and time that works with your schedule and start playing! Our National Game Day will begin at exactly 8 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, and ends at 8 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 5.
