Extra Life 2017


On November 4th, I'll be playing games for 24 hours to raise funds for sick kids at my local children's hospital!

Here's how it works

  • Extra Life is a 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

  • On Game Day (Nov. 4th), I will join the thousands of gamers and dedicate an entire day to play games and get donations from friends like YOU!

  • 100% of the donations go to my local hospital. 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. 


Why am I involved with Extra Life?  On February 28, 2011, after 6 days in a coma, my 2 year old son died due to complications from the H1N1 influenza virus.  We were well taken care of by our local children's hospital, Penn State Children's Hospital.  The doctors did everything they could for our son, while ensuring that we were also cared for physically and mentally.

As such, if I can raise even a dollar for the children and the children's hospital, I will do so.  Come watch me play games, give a few bucks to a good cause, and let's have a great time.



Donations stay local to fund critical treatments, healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care.
