What is Extra Life?

ExtraLife is an annual video game marathon event that raises money for the 170 member hospitals of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Here in Utah, our local Children's Miracle Network hospital is the Primary Children's Hospital. All money that our GEEX team rasies for Extra Life will go directly to supporting Primary Children's Hospital. Last year, Extra Life gamers around the world raised over $500,000 in funds for Children's Miracle Network hospitals.

How does it work?

On Saturday, October 15th, participants begin active play at 8:00 am in their own local timezone. Players can participate by playing anything from hardcore shooters, social networking games, or even table top games. Extra Life doesn't specify. If a gamer can't complete the full 24 hour marathon or must play on an alternative date, that's OK. Being that GEEX is happening on the scheduled official Extra Life date, we are scheduling an alternative date for GEEX participants on October 29-30. The best part about Extra Life is that you can participate from the comfort of your own couch.

How do your donations help?

All funds raised stay in the comunity and go directly to help local kids up at the Primary Children's Hospital. Donations are being used by Children's Miracle Network hospitals to support research and training, purchase needed equipment and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of our mission to save and improve the lives of sick children.

What can I do?

We will be taking donations online and at the GEEX event leading up to our planned Extra Life date. We invite anyone who is willing and able to join team GEEX and start raising money for Extra Life in an effort to help the community and the local children currently receiving treatment at Primary Children's Hospital.
