When we created the Extra Life Edmonton team in 2012, we just wanted to bring together some of Edmonton’s diverse and active gaming community together for 24-hours of fun and fundraising. Over the six years that’s followed, our community has exploded into something bigger and more awesome than we could have hoped.
In 2012, we started with a little over 50 marathon participants, raising just over $25,000 for the Stollery. In 2016, we had over 250 participants at our marathon, doing their part to help Edmonton raise over $190,000 for our local children’s hospital! It’s an astounding feat and one that rests solely on the willingness of Edmonton’s geek community to band together and fundraise year after year, bringing more of their friends along for the ride.
So where can you find this group of nerdy philanthropists? Our community is spread all over Edmonton’s digital sphere, across our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat (yegextralife). Our community grows larger every day, and we couldn’t be prouder of, or more humbled by, their endless drive to use their passion for gaming as a force for good.
Donations stay local to fund critical treatments, healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care.
