Extra Life is a grassroots experience that mobilizes passionate game lovers to help sick and injured kids treated at their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Extra Lifers raise money year-round, culminating in a massive international day of play each fall.
During this all-games-in weekend, participants continue to fund raise, play games and ultimately celebrate our grand total together. Unlike traditional fundraising events, Extra Lifers typically participate from the comfort of their own home. From video games to board games and beyond, Extra Lifers have raised over $8 million dollars since the program was founded in 2008 by gamers for kids needing help.
