Calling All Gamers: Extra Life Fundraiser is November 2!

Do you like to game? If the answer is yes, why not play your favorite games for charity? On November 2nd, 2013 participate in the Extra Life gaming event. This is the biggest gaming charity of the year to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (in Minnesota and western Wisconsin, that’s Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare)!

Here’s how it works. Ask your friends and family to sponsor you with a monthly pledge or a one-time gift and on November 2nd, sit back, relax, and game for the next 25 hours. This can be any type of game — mobile devices, consoles, even board games all count. You can game by yourself, or in a group. No matter how you choose to play, you’re making a difference in the lives of children who receive care at Gillette.

A big supporter of Extra Life is mobile video-gaming company Game Truck.  Yesterday, the Minneapolis Game Truck visited Gillette to help recruit participants for this year’s Extra Life fundraiser. The truck opened its doors and welcomed all who were interested to game and learn more about the Extra Life event.

If you’re an avid gamer or just someone who enjoys playing video games, sign up and take the Extra Life challenge on November 2nd. To learn more visit, the Extra Life website.
