I leave tomorrow for Extra Life United 2019. I will be making my 4th trip to Orlando to participate, and hoping to make it 3 years in a row winning money for my hospital.

This year, I had lapel pins made to match my shield and Crokinole board:



I will be handing them out to the Champion Children during Childrens' Hospitals Week, as well as to other Extra Lifers, and sending some out in the mail to individuals.

This will be my, I think, 8th year doing Extra Life, but, my 6th year being highly active in it. I have raised over $13K for my primary hospital to date, as well as just shy of $1000 for my secondary hospital. (I met some friend at my first ELU, and joined them for their board game marathon that year. Since then, I have done side fundraising for their hospital, as well)

I will keep this thread updated with my progress at ELU, like I have the last few years. Feel free to leave messages of support.

Also, any monetary support you can provide would be greatly appreciated, and can be made via my donation page:

Or, if you are in the US NorthEAST, and would like to instead support my secondary hospital (The Barbara Bush Childrens Hospital in Portland, ME), you can do that via this donation page:

I arrived at Extra Life United today, and started mingling. During my drive and my arrival, through interactions (and distribution of lapel pins), I have raised $125 for my primary hospital and $75 for my secondary hospital.
You keep getting better and better at this, I'm sure you can keep breaking your own record each year.
Keep us updated
I am all done with ELU 2019. My team did well, but, I was the weak link. I still hustled my way over $900 for my hospital, but my team member, Lora, did $9150 for our hospital. So, I am almost halfway to my yearly goal of $2000, with some hopes of possibly pushing it higher.

I am wiped out. We did the Disney parks today for my birthday, and I am just ready to crash.
I have updated my donation page with some milestone goals to help me reach my goals.
