Extra Life Gives Peoria Gamers a Way to Fundraise

extra life with child logoPEORIA AREA GAMERS ARE GIVING BACK AND GEARING UP FOR “EXTRA LIFE” GAME DAY ON NOV. 5 TO SUPPORT CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL OF ILLINOIS.

For the 24-hour fundraiser, gamers register for free at www.Extra-Life.org and select their local CMN Hospital, establish a fundraising goal and seek donations from friends and family.

“Extra Life continues to grow because it answers a very simple question: How can I use my love of gaming to make life better for kids in my community?” said Jeromy Adams, founder of Extra Life. “The call to give back is connecting children’s hospital advocates across North America — from families to college students and everyone in between. Play games to heal kids treated at Children’s Hospital.

In 2015 – over $34,000 was raised by our Extra-Life gamers for Children’s Hospital of Illinois.  Please join in the fun this year by registering at www.Extra-Life.org.

WHEN:  November 5, 2016 @ 8am (Or pick a date that works for you!)

WHERE:  Anywhere you like to game (Most people play from home!)

GAME/PLATFORM:  Play any games on any platforms you want including mobile devices or board games!

HOW IT WORKS:  Simply ask your friends and family to sponsor your efforts. They can make a monthly pledge or a one-time gift. Then, have a seat and play games on November 5.

WHO IT BENEFITS:  Gamers select the children’s hospital they want to play for during registration. In the US and Canada there are more than 170 CMN Hospitals to choose from. Players outside of North America can choose hospitals and causes that work specifically in their area of the world.

As always you can register for Extra Life absolutely free, however we’d like you to consider the $15 Platinum option, which makes you eligible to receive lot’s of goodies and prizes throughout the campaign, including the official 2016 Extra Life T-shirt when you hit $200 in funds raised.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals supports healthy and safe gaming for kids.  If you have questions or concerns about your child’s gaming, please visit www.cmch.tv/ for resources on healthy gaming habits for kids.
