For years I've been interested in Extra Life, I first heard about it from Jack and the others over at RoosterTeeth.com. I mean, fundraising to help sick kids by playing GAMES! What could be more fun and suited towards me? This will be my first year participating but I can tell you it will be far from the last!
What is Extra Life? It is a world wide fundraising campaign that supports the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Teams and participants fund raise and in Edmonton on November 4th, gather for a 24 hour gaming marathon. The Edmonton chapter, that I am a part of, will see 100% of the funds raised by the Edmonton team go directly to the Edmonton Stollery.
Thankfully, with 4 kids, we have never needed the Stollery, and I hope to never see the inside of it for any extended amount of time but many families do. So we play for them. We play for those that can not. We play now so that they may play later. We play for the kids.
Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. You can click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to make a safe and easy online donation.

I need your help to reach my goal #ForTheKids. Thank you so much for supporting my efforts!
