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 $77,000 for Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.
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. Participants are encouraged to participate in a 24-hour National Game Day, which will be on November 4 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, 2017 and ends on December 31, 2017.
