The gaming and e-sports industry has taken the world by storm. Extra Life was born by bringing together the unstoppable energy and passion of gamers and connecting them with the goal to impact children’s health.
Extra Life unites thousands of players worldwide in epic 24-hour gaming marathons to support local children’s hospitals. Since 2011, Extra Life has raised more than $9.68 million for sick and injured kids in Canada.
The annual community-wide 24-hour celebration, Game Day, will be on Saturday, November 2, 2019!
Supporting research and training
That means more medical advancements can be made, whether it’s discovering a new cure or a gentler treatment.
Helping purchase life-saving equipment
That means hospitals can save the lives of more children and offer treatments that are less painful and more reliable.
Paying for uncompensated care
That allows hospitals to treat every patient that comes through their doors, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.
