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


For the 10th year in a row, we're raising funds for Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago, where team member Mike's daughter Olivia was treated after being born prematurely at 24 weeks. While she didn't survive, Olivia received world-class care, and Mike and his family are forever grateful for the time they had with her.

To honor her memory, Mike and his friends have been participating in Extra Life, a 24-hour gaming marathon, every year since 2014. To date, they've raised nearly $38,000 for Lurie, thanks to the generosity of people like you.

We know times are tough, but we'd greatly appreciate your contribution to our cause, no matter how big. Even spreading the word about our mission is a great help.

This August 26th, starting at 8am Central Time, we'll be celebrating Olivia's 9th birthday and kicking off our gaming marathon. You can watch us live on Twitch to see what we're up to and offer words of encouragement. 

And if you'd like to help raise money for Lurie or your own local children's hospital while playing video games for 24 hours, we'd love to have you join Team Olivia. Just click the green "Join Our Team" button above.

Thanks so much for your support over the years. It really means a lot to us.
