On November 2nd, I'll be joining many other participants all over the world to play games for 24 hours to help local kids. Specifically, all funds I raise will go to the Jim Pattison Children's Hospital Foundation!
Welcome to my Extra Life fundraising page! I'm on a mission to help sick and injured kids in my local community and I need your help.
On September 25, 2014 ground was broken for the Children's Hospital of Saskatchewan, now known as the Jim Pattison Children's Hospital, on the ground of the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon. For years these kids have had to travel to other provinces to receive the medical care that they need, and I'm excited that soon they will be able to receive that care here in the province that they live in. As of the time I am writing this, the hospital is now over 90% completion. In fact, the hospital is in schedule to open later THIS year!
Personally, several years ago my best friend had to take his son out of province to Edmonton so that he could be in the children's hospital there. I'm not saying that Edmonton is a bad hospital, any place that helps kids is a great hospital. What I'm saying is that it isn't right that these kids can't get the help they need closer to home.
I first participated in this event in 2014, when it was held on October 25th, which coincidentally was exactly one month after ground was broken for the Jim Pattison Chidlren's Hospital. Now 6 years later, I am participating for the 6th straight year and I hope to continue for many years to come.
I'll be participating in this huge worldwide celebration of the social impact of gamers of all kinds from video games to board games and tabletop RPG's! It's my sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support my efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to my hospital.
