Dear Friends and Family,
My name is Sam Wachter, and this is my fifth year participating in Extra Life. In 2013 my father passed away from gastro-stomach cancer, and it changed my life forever. SickKids was his favourite charity, and one he supported when he could. My father was a huge part of my Extra Life experience, as he was notorious for reminding me and my friends to take breaks, or if we needed to eat something, and he was an all around cheerleader for the cause.
I am hoping this year that you will all support me in endeavour. It means the world to me and I keep coming back because the cause continues to be so important to my heart. Children are fighters, and they need our support in dealing with the various complications and hands they get dealt with every year.
Extra Life has raised more than $14 million to help children's hospitals provide critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, research and charitible care. It's my sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support my efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to my hospital.
Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.
Thank you so much for supporting my efforts!
