What is Extra Life?

This is a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraising program that empowers the gaming community to make a difference in the lives of local sick and injured kids. Participants fundraise all year-round and during a 24-hour gaming marathon each fall.

Getting involved with the program is as easy as signing up online at extra-life.org, asking your friends and family to donate and pledging to play games for 24 hours in support of Nationwide Children’s Hospital or any CMN Hospital.

What Can You Do?

We encourage you to register to become a participant of Extra Life and create your own fundraising page! You get the chance to do what you love to do, fundraise and allow kids to just be kids.

In the Akron – Youngstown area, our local Children’s Network of Hospitals is Akron Children’s Hospitals.
