Good news, everybody!

This year marks my 9th Extra-Life charity marathon since I first got involved in 2009. This year I will be supporting a very special hospital to me, WVU Medicine Children’s, in Morgantown, WV. I grew up within the WV area and went to school there prior to living in California. Peers I went to school with work here and have to bring their seriously ill children here.

Instead of going with my local CA hospital as always, I wanted to make sure that the people who helped me get here can benefit directly from my participation.

Originally, I started participating as a way to support @Drew and his #BlameDrewsCancer movement, but after my own diagnosis as well as other loved ones -- it grew into something much bigger for me.

WVU Medicine Children’s is a member of the Children's Miracle Network and treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few. This year, I'll be participating in this huge worldwide celebration of the social impact of gamers of all kinds from video games to board games and tabletop RPG's! It's my sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support my efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to my hospital. Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids. After donation, you will receive a copy of your donation for tax purposes. I need your continued help to reach my goal For The Kids. Please make a safe, easy donation online today. Click the "Support This Participant" button on this page to get started. Thank you so much for supporting my efforts!

Below are some video highlights from previous years I have particupated during extra life, special thanks to Ktdata, Rosekitty, & Oxytommy for keeping me company in the videos. It was super late and I was getting silly.
