Extra Life

24 Hour Extra Life Marathon for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta

For the past several years I have participated in the charitable event known as Extra Life. Extra Life is a 24 hour gaming marathon (video/board/card games) that raises money for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals around the world. This year it takes place on November 4th, 2017. I’ll start once the clock strikes midnight and end at midnight the following day.

Since I married and moved to Atlanta in 2010 I have been raising money for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. My husband is an Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia survivor, who was successfully treated by the amazing folks at CHOA Scottish Rite, which is why I chose Children’s as the hospital I wish to support in my Extra Life efforts.

I don’t have any giant cross stitches to raffle off this year but I do have some other awesome prizes. I have some Loot Crate/Loot Anime items, a fat stack of manga and light novels, and I’m throwing in 2 $25 gaming cards (platform of winners’ choice). Every $5 donated will give you one raffle entry (so $25 will get you 5 entries, etc) and every single penny raised is going to the hospital. Your donations are tax deductible and you will receive a receipt.

My gaming schedule for the big day is pretty much set, but depending on what games I might pick up in the meantime it is subject to changes.

Midnight – 2am: Night Trap
2am – 4am: Little Nightmares
4am – 8am: Elder Scrolls Online
8am – Noon: The Last of Us
Noon – 2pm: Patapon Remastered
2pm – 4pm: (undecided)
4pm – 8pm : Destiny 2
8pm – Midnight: Yomawari Midnight Shadows + Drinking Game!

Yomawari Drinking Game rules: Between 10pm and Midnight I will take a shot of sake for every $10 donated during this time period to help me reach my donation goal.
