Extra Life | Meet Beaumont’s Gamers

extra_life

Some people raise money by holding bake sales. Some people raise money running marathons. And on one Saturday each fall, tens of thousands of gamers join together to raise money to save the lives of local kids by playing video games (anything from console games to tabletop RPG’s to even lawn sports). This is Extra Life.

Partnering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, players sign up and gather the support of their friends and family through tax-deductible donations to their specified local CMN Hospital. As the only CMN affiliated hospital in Southeast Michigan, we’re lucky to have a great group of players playing for Beaumont Children’s Hospital. Since 2008, Extra Life gamers have raised more than $4 million. This year, on November 2, we believe they’ll outdo themselves yet again.

Take a minute to learn about a few of the players playing for Beaumont Children’s Hospital. Click on each profile to learn more about each player including how they’re preparing for the 25-hour gaming marathon and what their favorite game of all time is. If you’d like to make a donation, click the Support Me button at the bottom of their page.
