McLane Children's Champions

Extra Life 2017

Join Our Team

Hey there!

Welcome to our McLane Children's Medical Center Extra Life Team fundraising page! Our team is on a mission to help sick and injured kids in our local community and we need your help. Each of us has chosen our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, McLane Children’s. They treat thousands of children each year, regardless of their illness, injury or even their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries they may get from just being a kid.

To help raise funds and awareness for these sick and injured kids, we're participating in this huge worldwide movement called Extra Life. Gamers of all kinds pledge to play everything from video games to board games and tabletop RPG's for 24 hours! It's our sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support our efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to the hospital each of us has chosen to support.

Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. To make a safe and easy online donation to a member of our team, click on the "Roster" tab and then on a participant's name.

Our group started out as a small group of teens in the hospital wanting to make a difference in the lives of others just like us. After much hard work and dedication, we are proud to announce that we collected a total of over $26,000.00 for our hospital to purchase a vein viewer and a blanketrol in 2016.

This year we hope to raise $31,809.00 to purchase an Osmometer for the lab, a Bronch & Mini Telelscope and a Defibrillator.

Please see the link below about our fearless leader, Christien. There is no way that our group would have existed without his persistence and vision and we couldn't be more proud to continue his legacy this year. Christien made a huge difference in all of our lives and we hope to do the same in the lives of others.
