We are very quickly approaching our third annual Extra Life marathon and (as always) I am running behind schedule getting this ball rolling. The event will start on November 5th so time is of the essence. For those of you who have joined the guild in the past year and have no idea what I’m talking about let me give you a brief run down.
Extra Life is a fundraising event aimed squarely at gamers that raises money for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. The event is in the form of a 24 hour gaming marathon. In the past, many of us have played together with a goal in mind but you can actually do any gaming you like for the event. The first year many of us leveled fresh toons for the entire time and last year we ran every raid in the game. I’m thinking this year could be a clear of every known dungeon in the game but again, you can actually just do whatever you want for the 24 hours.
So a gaming marathon sounds fun but how does that raise money for kids? The idea is similar to other charity marathon events in which you ask friends and family to sponsor you for the event. Donations are collected via Extra Life’s website and 100% of the money raised goes directly to a CMN hospital of your choice. We have participated as a guild for the last two years and raised a total of $3320 to help kids in need. If you would like to know more you can check out our teams Extra Life page or reach out to Cathy or myself for more info. I’m looking forward to making this year the best ever.
