Raising Funds for Children’s Hospitals for Extra Life 2020

Since 2008, gamers from all over the world have come together to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals by participating in Extra Life. Gamers commit to 24 hours of gaming, which can involve video games, tabletop games, or even at home, game show-style fun. Hospitals have been strained during 2020, and many are desperately in need of funds so they can continue to offer services to the patients and their families.

I will be kicking off my 24 hour marathon session on Nov 14, 2020 at 12am ET. Everyone is welcome to swing by, say hi, and help encourage me as I push to get through another 24 hours of gaming. If you would like, you may donate to my campaign here. Every penny raised this year is going to help my local Children’s Miracle Network hospital.

My marathons are always streamed on my Twitch channel until midnight/1am-ish on November 15, 2020. Then, I shall promptly pass out for a good 10 hours of sleep. Trust me when I say that sugar and caffeine crash hits pretty darn hard.
