Since 2008, tens of thousands of gamers have united to play games, change kids' health and change the future. Their gaming styles are diverse: from video games and esports, to tabletop games, to lawn sports. Whether you're a live streamer or you get together IRL, Extra Life empowers gamers and content creators of every kind to use their passion for play to save lives.
What began as a 24-hour gaming marathon, people now uniquely define the Extra Life challenge they want to take on. If you're not sure where to start, give the gaming or streaming marathon a try.
