For more on why I do this, my 7 and a half minute monologue on why I Extra Life can be found here--please check it out:
For my fourth year, I am raising money for Children's Hospital Colorado by playing a 24 hour marathon on November 5th. All games are fair game and we'll hit a little bit of everything. But more importantly, we're raising money for one of the best causes out there--to save sick and injured kids. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few.
Since 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $22 million to help children's hospitals provide critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, research and charitible care. Every year we top the previous year's number and grow this charity and save more and more kids. Having met dozens of the children who fight or have fought for their lives with the assistance of these hospitals, I can't fully express how proud I am to be a part of something so amazing.
Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.
