Join us for our first-ever Extra Life Family Game Day
Saturday, June 27
Get your family together for a Family Game Day in support of children’s health care! 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.
Households are encouraged to participate in Family Game Day on June 27. You can also mark your calendar for the 24-hour National Game Day on November 7. 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.
Register and create your own personal fundraising page, which you can share with friends, family, streamers, and more! Show off how you’re playing games to heal kids. All funds raised will benefit Connecticut Children’s as we continue to care for patients and families across Connecticut.
Fundraising begins on January 1, 2020, and ends on December 31, 2020.
