About Extra Life
For the last five years, thousands of gamers have joined together annually to play for 24 hours as part of Extra Life – a gaming marathon in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, including Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego. Gamers rally friends and family members to sponsor their play. The funds they raise go to help save and improve the lives of kids in their communities by supporting Care, Technology and Discovery.
Since 2008, players across the globe have raised more than 3 million dollars, with more than $1 million last year alone. And this year, on November 2nd, 2013 we believe they will outdo themselves yet again.
We'd like YOU to join our lifesaving fight and help kids right here in San Diego by playing games to help support Rady Children’s.
WHEN: Saturday, November 2, 2013 @ 8am (Or choose a date that works for your schedule)
WHERE: Anywhere you like to game (Most people play from home!)
GAME/PLATFORM: Play any games on any platforms you want including mobile devices (or even board games)!
HOW IT WORKS: Simply ask your friends and family to sponsor your efforts. They can make a monthly pledge or a one-time gift. Then, have a seat and play games on November 2nd.
WHO IT BENEFITS: Gamers select the children's hospital they want to play for during registration, we hope you choose to support your local hospital - Rady Children’s.
As always you can register for Extra Life absolutely free, however we'd like you to consider the $15 Platinum option, which makes you eligible to receive lots of goodies and prizes throughout the campaign, including the official 2013 Extra Life T-shirt when you hit $200 in funds raised.
