It has been a couple of years since I had the opportunity to participate in the Extra Life fundraising event, but I cannot wait to get started! Much like in prior years, I will be traveling back to Iowa to meet up with Keri Honea, Ross Polly and Chris Nitz to play some games and help sick kids.
This year's event will take place over the weekend of October 21st and 22nd. Over the weekend I plan to spend (at least) 24 hours marathoning through several games of your choosing, while streaming the entire experience with the world via Twitch.
What's in it for you?
Your participation is key to making this event fun for everyone involved! This is why I have setup two tiers of support that actually have benefits FOR YOU.
For only a $5 contribution you can tell me what to play for a half hour of the marathon. You name it, I'll play it! Want to torture me? Have at it! You will be able to stream my joy or misery firsthand, via Twitch.
For a $10 contribution you can actually get a PC game of your chosing from the list below:

Here's how it works
Extra Life is a 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
I will join the thousands of gamers and dedicate an entire day (or in our case, an ENTIRE WEEKEND) to play games and get donations from friends like YOU!
This year I've selected 100% of the donations to benefit a children's hospital in Houston, TX. TOGETHER we will make a difference for sick 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.
