Extra Life 2020

Hi everyone!

Wow. This is crazy to think about Extra Life during a pandemic. I have been thinking about it for the last few weeks. There is no doubt it will be different this year, but it will go on. We haven’t decided if we will be in person, even if we can be in one place with social distancing of course. We could be virtual. We also may make adjustments to the timing of events, and maybe even break it up over a couple of days…but it will go on. The children’s hospital, and the kids still need our help!

This is my 8th year raising money for the children’s hospital. Last year, 7 of us raised over $4,100 for the hospital! It will be a challenge to come close to that number this year, but we are going to try. I am looking into some new and creative ways to raise money this year.

What is Extra Life? If you are not familiar, here is a little background. I will be dedicating 24 hours with thousands of other gamers across the world, to support our local children’s hospitals. This was started in memory of a little girl from Texas that fought hard, and this is her legacy. A local DJ contacted a gaming group to send in games to give her, and other kids fighting hard, something to do during long hospital stays. And that is how Extra Life was born! I am proud to support this cause! And thank you all for your support, LIKEs and SHARES! And please do share. Anyone can give as little as a dollar, and every dollar counts!

Thanks,
John
