Extra Life is a annual 24-hour video game marathon that raises money to help kids at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. It’s never been this much fun to do this much good. Just click the Register Now! button to get started. You’ll get your own personal page to help your fundraising efforts and track your progress.
This year’s event begins at 8 a.m. on Oct. 15, 2011. Each participant is asked to raise money by recruiting at least four sponsors to give $1 for each hour of the marathon (that’s just $24 per sponsor).
What makes Extra Life so incredibly easy is you can do it from the comfort of your own home. While many churches and schools do lock-ins for Extra Life, you don’t HAVE to go anywhere. What’s more, you can play any game or games you want to during the event. Xbox 360, PS3, PC, even games on your phone count.
If you can’t play the full 24 hours on Oct. 15 nobody is going to kick down your door and stick a controller in your hand. You can make up the time later, or even get ahead by playing some of your 24 hours BEFORE the event.
The important thing is to make the commitment to help local children get better. All the money you raise will stay at the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital near you.
Thank you for taking the time to be a player, a donor or to simply spread the word to other gamers.
