Extra Life (the 24-hour gaming marathon for charity) is approaching its 2014 event. October 25, 2014 will be the official worldwide marathon date for most participants (there will be some that do their marathon on a different date because of conflicts).

I have been working with KU Med Pediatrics this year to improve overall awareness of and participation in Extra Life. However, now that we are in the final weeks, I am looking for sponsors to help support me in my efforts.

I will be playing tabletop games this year at my local FLGS (friendly local game shop), with plans to stream the entire 24-hours. I have been working with the store to make sure I have everything we need to stream, and have successfully tested streaming. We will game from Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 08:00 Central Time until Sunday, October 26, 2014 at 08:00 Central Time. You can watch the stream on my Twitch.tv channel. I would appreciate any support (sponsorship), too. You can sponsor me HERE.

If you are unfamiliar with Extra Life, then, please take a moment and go to their website. You can read up on their history and about the young girl, Victoria Enmon, who was the inspiration for the charity and the event.

Either way, thanks for reading.


Tomorrow is one week out from Extra Life 2014. I have made my goal, but, many on my team still need help making their goals.

You can see the whole team roster HERE! The team includes many gamers, including Dog of Thunder and ChromeZombie!
Well, I wish you and your team the best of luck on achieving your team goal. Hopefully you all can hit it before the event starts. I always thought about doing this but I never do, I might try next year though.

Donations go until December 31, 2014. Then, on Jan 1, 2015, Extra Life 2015 starts.

So, you still have 73 days to do fundraising!
Always a great thing. Wish I could be more involved.

Got another donation today, almost matched my last year total, just $15 away.

$45 away from hitting $300.

Who wants to help push me past that mark?

Two $25 donations just pushed me over $300. Now to try for $500.

Thanks to everyone that supports, and those who want to but cannot.

Don't forget, I plan to stream most of my marathon starting Saturday morning over at my Twitch channel
Woke up this morning to another $25 donation. My Extra Life 2014 is up to $330!

Thanks to everyone that keeps it coming!
I'd help you out, but I just dropped $2k at a Charity auction here at work so I'm tapped out on helping the kids (except my own) right now. Good luck on your goals though.

Followed you on Twitch. Wish I could donate to the team, but I'll support by watching some this weekend! Good luck, and thank you, and the rest of your team, for your time towards a good cause.
Yup.
Another $20 puts me at $350! Only $150 away from $500 (and a silver medal!).
Another $25, up to $375 FTK!

Maybe I can make it to $500 this year!
Finally rested up some.

We played:

Kingdom Builder
Lords of Waterdeep
Zombie Dice
Ice Dice
Carcassonne
King of Tokyo
Munchkin Loot Letter
Small World
Boss Monster
San Juan
Fresco

And many that I just cannot remember. At 1:00 AM (Central), the game shop pretty much emptied out, so, I finally went home and finished my marathon with some Destiny and then finished up The Walking Dead Season 2 Chapters 4 and 5.
This year the Extra Life campaign broke records, raising more than $5.5 million for Children's Miracle Hospitals. The Extra Life campaign is where many video gamer's go through to fundraise for charity via live streams on Twitch every year since 2008.
