Extra Life Nerds Extra Life 2018


Hi all,

Jessica and I are organizing the Nerdery Chicago Extra Life event for the third time this year! Here's what we did in 2016. Recap of 2017 coming soon...

We are raising money for Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital that treats kids facing scary stuff.

We're going to be playing video games, board games, and all sorts of other stuff in a 24 hour event to help support the kids. Since 2010, Extra Life has raised more than $14 million to help children's hospitals provide critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, research and charitible care.

If you're willing to pledge, your donation is tax-deductible and all proceeds go to help kids. Click the "Support Me" button on this page to get started.

If you are part of an organization interested in sponsoring us in the form of dollars, products, raffle items, or anything else, please reach out to us!

Thank you!
