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.
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.

Connecticut Children’s understands that making children’s lives as healthy and happy as possible goes beyond providing care when they are sick. From the delivery of world-class medical care to community-based health and wellness programs, Connecticut Children’s helps children grow through every moment of life.
On Saturday, November 2, Connecticut Children’s will host a Greatest Showman-themed Gala at the Connecticut Convention Center. The Gala pre-event cocktail reception will include unique silent auction items and interactive performers. The ballroom will be transformed so everyone in attendance can experience all the wonder and delights of the Big Top. The evening will conclude with dancing to live music.

Why not set up a fundraising team?
Jamie Knotts lost her battle with a rare liver cancer at 5 1/2 months old in 2010. This race not only honors Jamie, but also the doctors, nurses and staff at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center who are living angels to the children and families who are currently struggling with cancer and blood disorders.
Your participation will ensure a brighter future for children all over Connecticut, who come to Connecticut Children’s for state-of-the-art care. The race for a cure for many forms of cancer and blood disorders continues. The proceeds equally support the Cancer Clinical Trials Program, which helps to offer the latest advancements in treatment, and the Family Assistance Fund, because the last thing a parent needs to worry about when their child is diagnosed with cancer is how to pay the bills.
