Team Captain Nerdgasm Gaming Extra Life 2019


Hey there!

Do you guys remember your childhood? Do you remember playing outside, scraping your knee, adventures in the creek, playing "Tag", riding bikes, climbing trees, seeing how high you can swing and being out until you got "the whistle" to come in?

Well, Extra-Life exists because there are some children that are missing out on all of that fun. Instead, they're sitting in a hospital bed as you read this; one may be battling Cancer while another is attached to a machine that helps him breathe. Maybe a little girl is trying her hardest to deal with Cystic Fibrosis while the kid next door got burned severely: and these are just a few potential scenarios of children fighting for their lives or even just a piece of what you and I consider normalcy. I participate in Extra-Life because I want to help those kids get the help they need to receive treatment or ideally, get out of those beds and enjoy the things that we got to.

Don't get me wrong, not all cases are that severe. Do you also remember maybe breaking a bone or sustaining some type of injury that required medical attention? Unfortunately, those things happen too and regardless of the parents' ability to pay, they receive help from Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

Suddenly, a wild gamer appears!

To help raise funds and awareness for these sick and injured kids, I'm participating in the increasingly well-known worldwide movement called Extra Life. Gamers of all kinds pledge to play everything from video games to board games and tabletop RPG's for 24 hours! I'm returning for Round 8 and once again backed by other benevolent gamers known as Nerdgasm Gaming, we're forming like the friggin' Megazord. We're just some gamer buddies looking to do some good in the world. If you wanna add yourself to the roster, we'd welcome you with open arms and I can promise that you'll have a great time and feel good for doing it!

NO portion of your donation goes to the pockets of the team myself, 100% goes to the Children's Miracle Network Hospital that each gamer chooses to represent. 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 our goal For The Kids. Thank you so much for supporting our efforts!

About Extra Life

Extra Life is a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraising program within the gaming community. Participants fundraise year-round and pledge to game for 24 hours with one goal: to save and improve the lives of sick and injured kids. Funds raised stay local to help pediatric patients at 170 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across North America. Since 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $30 million for member hospitals. The movement, formed by gamers bonded by passion, is committed to saving and improving the lives of local kids. 


On November 2nd, 2019 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. 2nd 2019), 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!
