Extra Life United: Online Edition

I'm participating in Extra Life United to raise funds for kids at my local children's hospital!
 

My tournament Schedule

UNO - April 7th (times TBD)
Magic The Gathering : Arena (times TBD)

Here's how it works

  • Extra Life United is a virtual gaming tournament and fundraiser to support sick and injured kids and local children's hospitals.

  • From April 7-9, I'm competing in online gaming tournaments to unlock donations for Sick Kids hospital. There's $150,000 USD up for grabs and the event will be live streamed on the Extra Life Twitch channel!

  • I'm also collecting donations from friends and family to help sick and injured kids during the COVID-19 outbreak. 100% of the donations go to Sick Kid's hospital. 

Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. Simply click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to help. 

WHY AM I DOING THIS?

If you look around your family tree, there's a good chance you have your own story to share. Mine comes from my family.

My mother Nancy spent nearly a decade in and out of Sick Kids Hospital, undergoing many treatments over the years.

My brother Michael spent most of his childhood in and out of Sick Kids as well. He was born premature, and had severe asthma that required specialist attention. He also inhaled a peanut at a very young age, and had to be sent to Sick Kids Hospital because they were the only ones with tools small enough to operate on him.

My Son Rowan has been to sick kids for follow ups, as he was born premature and spend the first 2 months of his life in the NICU.

I can say from personal experience that there are too many kids that owe their lives to Sick Kids, and too many parents and siblings that can't thank them enough for keeping their family members around.

I think that's worth far more than my time, and I hope that's worth a few dollars to those reading this message.
