Are you a gamer?  Do you love playing games?  I don't just mean video games, I mean any kind of games.  If you love playing games then you don't want to miss out on this year's Extra Life.  Just by playing games, you can help out the Children's Miracle Network.


Extra Life is a new way to participate in saving lives. by playing video games or games. It doesn’t matter what games you play. All you have to do is get sponsored for playing your favorite game whether it be Candy Crush, Farm Heroes Saga, Connect Four, Poker or actual video games like Mario Bros, Call of Duty, Halo, or any other game that you enjoy.

Just know that while you are taking part in your favorite video game or board game, you are helping save a life. What could be more rewarding than that?

Coming up on Saturday, November 12th, it's a 12-hour gaming marathon with the Children's Miracle Network and Yellow City Comic Con for Extra Life.

All you have to do is come out to the Sunset Center and get ready to game.  They will have video games (all consoles), PC games, table top games, card games, etc.  If it's a game then it will probably be available.

Cost is $5 for a day pass or $15 for a day pass and meal.

The marathon goes from 10am - 10pm.  That's 12-hours of gaming to save the life of a child.
