Extra Life 2017


On November 4th, We'll be playing games for 24 hours to raise funds for sick kids at our local children's hospital!

Here's how it works

  • Extra Life is a 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
  • On Game Day (Nov. 4th), we will join the thousands of gamers and dedicate an entire day to play games and get donations from friends like YOU!
  • 100% of the donations go to our local hospital, the Texas Children's Center. TOGETHER we will make a difference for sick kids!

Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. You can click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to make a safe and easy online donation.

Be sure to check in with the Houstonian livestream and social media feeds all day on November 4th and 5th to donate and enter for chances to win some awesome prizes!

Thanks so much for checking us out, please consider sharing our efforts with your friends!

We also want to give a special thank you to the groups supporting this effort from campus and around Huntsville!

Gamer's Grove is a local game shop, the SHSU Esports team who has become one of the campuses biggest new orgs, and the SHSU Quidditch Team all are going to support us in this effort!
