Extra Life – Play Games. Heal Kids. @ Anywhere you want!
Nov 2 all-day

Extra Life. Play Games. Heal Kids.Extra Life is a year-round fundraising initiative that culminates in a 24-hour gaming challenge, where participants can play from the comfort of their own homes while supporting their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Last year, Extra Life raised more than $114,000 for Connecticut Children’s.

View our Extra Life Page

The concept of Extra Life is that people pledge their support to the gamers to play any games they wish for an allotted amount of time. Gamers can participate in video, tabletop, fantasy and other games. Participants are encouraged to participate during the 24-hour National Game Day, which will be on November 2 this year, but they are able to do this any day of the year for any amount of time they’d like. Fundraising begins on January 1, 2019 and ends on December 31, 2019.

To get involved or request more information on this year’s Extra Life activities for Connecticut Children’s please contact, Bianca Fiore.

Help kids like Olive

Olive is a sweetheart…and a fighter.

At less than 24 hours old, five-pound, 12-ounce Olive arrived at Connecticut Children’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Her initial diagnoses were terrifying. Olive was at risk for respiratory failure and needed heart surgery. While cradled in her mother’s arms, the unthinkable happened.
