Extra-Life 2017

Extra-Life connects thousands of gamers and unites them for a good cause, to raise funds for their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. On Saturday November 4th, 2017 thousands of gamers will be participating in gaming marathons, playing games and raising money to help heal children. These gaming events range from private marathons within gamer’s homes to larger scale public events in board game cafes, local YMCAs and Coespaces.

For more information on Extra-Life, what it is and how you can help I would highly recommend visiting their website: www.extra-life.org
