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 $72,000 for Connecticut Children’s.
The concept of Extra Life is that people pledge their support to the gamers who play any games they wish for an allotted amount of time. Gamers can participate in video, tabletop, lawn, fantasy and other games. To encourage the most possible participation, the Extra Life program welcomes you to participate any day of the year for any amount of time, in order to raise funds to support Connecticut Children’s.
Fundraising begins on January 1, 2020 and ends on December 31, 2020.
