On October 25th through 27th, we'll be playing games for 24 hours to raise funds Riley Children's Hospital!
Last year our group raised over $11,000 for Riley Children's Hospital and with your help we hope to raise even more!
Here's how it works
Extra Life is a 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. We've selected Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis, IN. Read below to find out why.
On Game Day, we will join the thousands of gamers and dedicate an entire weekend to play games and get donations from friends like YOU!
100% of the donations go to Riley Children's Hospital. TOGETHER we will make a difference for sick children!
Playing or teaching one of the featured games earns you a ticket. Additional tickets are available with a donation. Tickets can be placed in buckets for games you want to win. At the end of the event, tickets will be selected and the winner will receive their selected game.
Where is the event?
Saint Peter's Highland UCC (Located at 7014 Darmstadt Rd, Evansville, IN 47710 - north on First Ave until it changes to Darmstadt Rd). While this is at a church, this is not a church activity.
The event lasts throughout the weekend of October 25th (6pm - 9pm), October 26th (7am - 10pm), and October 27th (noon - 6pm), 2019. Feel free to stop by for as little or as long as you would like! We have over 100 games to play and a score of people to help teach you new games.
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.
The event takes place over the entire weekend for a total combined twenty four hours! Yes, we ARE crazy!
Why Riley Children's Hospital?
Riley Children's Hospital has helped countless Hoosier families, including many right here in the tri-state area.
On a more personal note, Jared's nephew, Roman, was treated as a newborn at Riley's NICU.
Roman was born with a congenital heart defect called Shone's Complex (more information http://www.pted.org/?id=shones1) in March 2017 and was transported to Riley for treatment just hours after his birth.

Riley Children's Hospital has helped thousands of families, and we're going to do what we can to give back to them. We have a full day of events planned and many amazing prizes.
We're planning on having a lot of great donation incentives at the event, so please stop by!
