November 7 is Extra Life Game Day and it’s For The Kids!

Thousands of Extra Life participants are gearing up to play games, heal kids on Game Day happening Saturday, November 7, 2020. Extra Life participants will become gaming heroes For The Kids as they play to change kids’ health and change the future for kids across the country treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Participates will play games to heal kids and help CMN Hospitals address the most challenging health issues of today while preparing for those to come. Because when we positively change the health of even one child, we create a ripple effect felt by communities for years to come. When we ensure children can lead healthy, fulfilling lives, we foster the scientists, inventors, gamers, and leaders of tomorrow.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is proud to partner with Ace Hardware, Marriott International, Marriott Vacations Worldwide, Aflac, United Networks of America and Air Canada Foundation to celebrate Extra Life Game Day.

This year, more than ever before, we know that kids can’t wait. For treatment. For a vaccine. Or to transform how we meet the most urgent needs and save more lives. The importance of children’s hospitals and how donations help kids get the urgent care they need is a critical discussion now and in the years ahead.

You can sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games.

Thank you to the following corporate partners who have made the needs of children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada a cause worth supporting.
