Building on the success of the Summer Bash and the Winter Games, Game Gym is pleased to announce the next jewel in our “Triple Crown,” a year-round slate of three online charity events, all benefiting Children’s National Hospital and the Extra Life Foundation. The Triple Crown is comprised of the DMV’s Winter Games, the DMV’s Spring Summit and the DMV’s Summer Bash.
We’ve added more partners to support the event, more great education and entertainment content, more thrilling competitions, more prize money and a career fair for entry-level professionals. The DMV’s Spring Summit is an online celebration of esports for kids, parents, and gamers of all ages, and will include the end-of season competitions for the District Esports League and the Mid-Atlantic Esports Conference. The Spring Summit will feature educational and entertainment panels each afternoon and competitions throughout the weekend in a variety of different esports.
The 2020 Triple Crown Events (Summer Bash and Winter Games) raised more than $17,000.00 for the Extra Life Foundation. Our goal is to exceed this amount in 2021 for Children’s National, while bringing awareness to the esports opportunities here in the DMV. And, from this point forward, all money raised for the Extra Life Foundation will be used to fund research using video games to assist in rehabilitation programs for children.
