Team Captain Cirrus Logic Gamers Extra Life 2017


Once again, I'm picking up my video game controller and readying for the Extra Life 24 hour gaming marathon. Once again, I'm asking you all to join me in this effort to help the children and families that find themselves at Austin's Dell Children's Hospital in Austin, Texas.

Leo and I were on Fox News talking about Extra Life.

Here's a link to video of it -

Dell Children's Hospital (DCH) is a critical resource for hundreds of thousands of families in the Central Texas area. From stitches to surgeries, NICU to challenging diagnoses, my family and many of yours have found themselves there for help. Last year I had the privilege to join with y'all and make a significant contribution to the Austin Dell Children's Hospital. The funds we raised went directly, without overhead costs removed, to assist children receiving medical attention at the hospital. Facilities, staffing and all the remarkable equipment at the hospital is there because people like you joined me and make a difference. This November, I'll be participating in this event and it's my sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support me with a one-time gift that will go directly to Dell Children's Hospital. Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids. Last year, Extra Life raised over 9 million dollars to save kids, but in 2017 our goals, just like the needs of the kids we serve, are much, much higher. I can't do this without your help. Donating online is safe and easy! To make an online donation please click the "Support This Participant" button on this page. Thank you for caring for our kids!
