Wizards of the Coast is thrilled to participate with Extra Life for the fifth year and work with our awesome community to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. We’ve got a lot of fun ideas in store for this year to make our events better than ever! Help us reach our goal of raising $150,000!
This marks the first year that we are organizing a super team – and we need your help! If you’ve got a group of friends or a local game store that wants to get involved in the action, join us! Just click the Create a Sub Team button at the top of our page and get ready to roll some D20s or tap some lands. Remember that every dollar we raise together goes directly towards the support and care of sick children.
Why We Play
Wizards of the Coast is supporting the Seattle Children’s Hospital.
In late 2016, Wizards of the Coast R&D member Rob Schuster and his wife Amanda were overjoyed to discover that they would be having a second child. However, early testing revealed that their soon-to-be daughter had Pfeiffer’s Syndrome, a rare disorder that can cause a significant amount of complications for the child.Initially, Rob and Amanda had difficulty finding the right team of physicians and treatment plans and were faced with a series of impossible choices. Luckily, they were able to find a team at the Seattle Children’s Hospital who believed they could provide the right kind of treatment for their daughter, Emerson, and on July 13th, little Emmy joined the world. But her battle isn’t finished. Emmy has needed a variety of surgeries and procedures and is still under the care of the Seattle Children’s Hospital. She, Amanda, Rob, and the amazing team at Seattle Children’s continue to battle to get Emmy home safely.
We are proud to be collecting donations that will help Emmy and other children fighting for their chance get the care that they need.
