GAMING = GIVING

A-TECH GAMING is on a mission to help sick and injured kids in our local community and we need your help. Our members are all over the country, so each member has chosen a local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital that treats thousands of children each year.

To help raise funds and awareness for these sick and injured kids, every year we join with EXTRA LIFE (http://extra-life.org) along with GAMERS of all kinds and ages.  On Novemeber 4th,  We pledge toplay everything from video games to board games and tabletop RPG’s for 24 hours non-stop!

As a member of the human community, we all know a family who has been affected by a sick child.  Please help us reach our goal!

FAQ’s

This sounds cool, but what exactly is Extra Life?

Extra Life is gamers doing what they do best to help sick and injured children at their chosen Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Simply sign up, commit to play games for 24 hours with us on any day of your choosing (or over a few days), and ask your family and friends to support your efforts!

Playing games can help my hospital? How does it work?

Great question! You can get started by registering right here!  Once you complete registration, you’ll get an online fundraising page that you can customize by choosing which hospital you want to support, setting a fundraising goal and sharing your personal reason for why you’re participating in Extra Life.  You’re able to unlock digital content and rewards by asking your family and friends to donate towards your efforts.

Where does the money go?

The money that you raise through Extra Life will go directly to your chosen Children’s Miracle Network Hospital as ‘unrestricted funds’.  This means that the hospital decides where and how to spend the money to ensure the dollars you raise make the biggest impact in the lives of the kids they treat.  For example, the money you raise will go to fund research and training, purchase life-saving equipment and pay for uncompensated care. Our hospitals treat every patient that comes through their doors, regardless of the family’s ability to pay. Our mission is to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible and the funds you raise make it possible for our hospitals to do that!

What kinds of games qualify for the Extra Life Marathon?

All games! From PS4 to poker on your phone, from classic board games to playing H-O-R-S-E in your driveway, the important thing is that you’re having fun and helping the kids!

What do I do on Game Day?

It’s totally up to you! You can game from the comfort of your own couch, at your friend’s house, at a rec center—anywhere is fair game (Pun intended. Eyerolls permitted)! Lots of Extra Lifers organize big group events for the occasion and just as many pull out the sweatpants and snacks for a chill day at home. It’s your fundraiser—do it your way!

What is Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals?
