What is Extra Life?

A fundraiser to help kids (emphasis on the “fun”)

Extra Life unites thousands of players around the world in a gaming marathon to support their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital (yours is Boston Children’s, of course!) Simply sign up, commit to play games for 12 or 24 hours and ask your family and friends to support your fundraising efforts! The official Game Day is in November, but you can also choose a game day (or days) that works best for your schedule.

A community and beyond

When you sign up, you become a part of the Boston Children’s Hospital family, local Extra Life Boston squad and nationwide Extra Life community.

Extra Life Boston Guild

Feel like really diving in? Check out the Extra Life Boston Guild. Guilds are groups of passionate Extra Lifers who are super involved in their local community. Each Guild hosts local meet-ups and attends gaming events to spread the word about Extra Life. Members have the opportunity to attend local gaming industry events and conferences, chat with other elite members of the Extra Life community and meet some of the kiddos that are treated at Boston Children’s Hospital!
