Deb and I continue to pledge to play games and raise funds for kids at our local children's hospital, the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital in Portland, ME. I need YOUR help to make my 10th year at this a big one!
how it works
Now, more than ever, local Children's Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals need our help.
I'm uniting with thousands of gamers to play games and change kids' health to change the future.

We all have our own reasons. A lot of it starts with what CMN does and how Extra-Life started. For me, when I heard about Extra-Life it hit a nerve. Hearing the story reminded me of my cousin Bobby. We were the same age and I still remember him and I playing with his train set. At a very early age he developed leukemia. At the time, all it meant was he had gotten sick. Bobby didn't survive.
Decades later, this takes on an entire different perspective. Having been through cancer as an adult, I know how much it takes out of you. As a child, it has to be even harder, yet they don't complain. Having kids of my own, it would be devastating to watch my child go through anything like this.
This is why, since hearing about Extra-Life, it has been a permanent part of my life and will continue to be. CMN supports children and their families wherever they are, to lessen the stress and impact families go through when children need treatment.
You can follow the links to donate directly or you can join us on game day and help us raise money and awareness.
If you want to join our team, but don't want to play Minecraft, that's perfectly fine. You can play anything you like. Solo games, board games, anything. If the marathon approach is too hard, you can split it up over a few days. You can do it on a different weekend. It's very flexible.
Thank you for reading through this. I hope you'll help in whatever way you can and spread the word to your friends and family.
