Extra Life 2015: Wrap Up

Extra Life 2015 is officially in the books for Team Mega Dads. Thanks to our amazing friends and family we managed to raise $605 for Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare in St.Paul, MN and Extra Life as a whole raised over $6.7 million dollars for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country. We are incredibly grateful for all of the support we received. The marathon itself was a lot of fun despite 3 wild and crazy children bouncing off the walls and numerous technical glitches. We both managed to make it through all 24 hours with only a few instances of nodding off. We played some Destiny, Super Mario Maker, Until Dawn, Splatoon, GTA V and more.

Thank you to 2D Boy, Supergiant Games,The Astronauts, No Goblin, Young Horses, Arrowhead Game Studios, Double Fine Productions, Drinkbox Studios, Stage 2 Studios, Wayforward Technologies, Thatgamecompany, Yacht Club Games. Your support once again this year was greatly appreciated.

After 3 years of participating in Extra Life, Team Mega Dads has raised over $1700 dollars and we look forward to gaming for kids again next year. It gets tougher each year as we get older but playing a whole bunch of video games to help these kids is literally the least we can do to try and give back to our community. Thanks again to everyone for the support!

P.s. If you’d still like to support the campaign, donations are always accepted even after the event. You can check out the fundraising page HERE.
