Extra Life is a 24-hour game-a-thon charity event that unites thousands of gamers around the world to play games in support of their local Children's Miracle Network hospital. For over a decade, gamers from all over the world have come together to give back to those who need it the most by raising more than $50 million for sick and injured kids through Extra Life.
Join us at Bell MTS Place on September 7-8th, 2019 to be a part of a charity event like no other, where participants and sponsors raise money for the Children's Hospital Foundation of Manitoba, and connect with the kids and their families who need our support now, more than ever! Extra Life North will be streamed LIVE on Twitch's home page, via the Flocker.tv stream.
Extra Life not only supports a great cause, but is a ton of fun! Unite with 650 gamers and spend 24 hours straight doing what you love, while making a real difference. There will be food, music, prizes, and awards - Extra Life North is Canada's largest gaming charity event that you won't want to miss!
