Participate in Extra Life

Families, individuals and game groups are all helping sick and injured children treated at All Children's Hospital with a can't miss opportunity on Saturday, November 2. Extra Life, a fundraising phenomenon helping Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across North America, adds a lifesaving purpose to playing video, board and lawn games.

Extra Life was created by Jeromy 'Doc' Adams in 2008 to honor the late Tori Enmon, a 15-year-old Children's Miracle Network Hospital patient who played video games during her battle with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (watch Tori's story). In 2012, Extra Life participants reached a fundraising milestone, with thousands of gamers raising more than $2.1 million directly benefiting Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across the United States and Canada.
