Be More than a gamer. Be a Hero. 

At Extra Life, we play games so that Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in the United States and Canada have the funding they need. We make it easy for you to be a hero to change kids’ health and change the future.

We’ve been around since 2008 and gamers like you have helped us raise more than $87 million dollars. But like every nonprofit, children’s hospitals rely on donations to serve their communities and the kids they treat.

We need your help and that might feel overwhelming. But without your support, we won’t be able to change kids’ health to change the future. Follow the below steps and be more than a gamer — be a hero.


Extra Life is a fundraising program of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals®, a nonprofit that funds for 170 children’s hospitals that support the health of 10 million kids each year across the U.S. and Canada. Donations go to local hospitals to fund critical life-saving treatments and healthcare services, along with innovative research, vital pediatric medical equipment, child life services that put kids’ and families’ minds at ease during difficult hospital stays and financial assistance for families who could not otherwise afford these health services. When we improve the health of all children and allow them the opportunity to reach their full potential, we also improve our communities for years to come. Together, we can change kids’ health. Together, we can change the future. To learn about Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and your local children’s hospital, visit
