Extra Life is a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraising program within the gaming community. Participants fundraise year-round and pledge to game for 24 hours with one goal: to save and improve the lives of sick and injured kids. Funds raised stay local to help pediatric patients at 170 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across North America. Since 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $30 million for member hospitals. The movement, formed by gamers bonded by passion, is committed to saving and improving the lives of local kids. 

So donate, join our team or support us with some messages saying we're doing an awesome job. Every little part helps and this is a way for gamers to unite and show everyone the power of our fandom.


Donations stay local to fund critical treatments, healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care.
