What is Extra Life?

Extra Life is a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraising program that empowers the gaming community to make a difference in the lives of local sick and injured kids. Participants fund-raise year-­round and during a 24-­hour gaming marathon each fall.

Getting involved is as easy as signing up online at extra-­, asking your friends and family to donate and pledging to play games for 24 hours in support of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital of your choice. You can play from the comfort of your own home, playing any game you want.

Our 170 member hospitals rely on donations to provide the best care for kids. Since 2008, we have raised over $30 million and it has gone towards things like funding critical treatments, research and equipment, as well as helping families who cannot afford care.
