Extra Life Game Day challenge, are you ready for it?

Less than a month to go until Game Day on November 3rd! Together, we will try to game for 24 straight hours & raise funds to save lives at Penn State Children’s Hospital. You’re welcome to game at home, with friends or join us for the guild’s Game Day event at Play N Trade in Camp Hill. We will provide food while you provide hope for the 100,000 kids who will need Penn State Children’s Hospital this year.

Your challenge today if you choose to accept it: Use #ExtraLifeHershey to share why you joined Extra Life. Post on Facebook or Twitter between now & October 31 using our hashtag & we’ll randomly select a gamer to win a $10 Fuddruckers’s gift card. Each Extra Life share/post can help us reach our goal of raising $50,000 for Penn State Children’s Hospital.

We would also like to recognize our current top fundraisers. These top 5 Extra Lifers have raised over $3,000 already for kids at Penn State Children’s Hospital.

While recovering from brain surgery at Penn State Children’s Hospital, Miracle Kid Christopher needed to get up an out of bed to help him recover faster. The hospital’s Child Life team used the gaming room in the hospital as an incentive for Chris to get up and move! Chris will join us at Play N Trade on Game Day as we play and raise funds to heal kids like him.

Here are 3 tips to get in the Game Day zone.

– Get to know our Miracle Kids by watching their stories here.

  • Every donation you raise through Extra Life goes directly to help local kids who are treated at Penn State Children’s Hospital.

– Share your Game Day prep on social media using the #ExtraLifeHershey. We love to follow your journey to Game Day!

– Make a donation to your own fundraising page

  • When people see that you’re serious about reaching your fundraising goal and have donated to yourself, they are 4x more likely to donate. Pretty cool, huh?

We look forward to seeing you at Game Day 2018!
