Extra Life 2017 Fundraising Campaign Kickoff


It’s time once again to stock up on Pizza Rolls and Root Beer, Extra Life 2017 is almost here! For the fifth year in a row, the Mega Dads will be taking part in the charity event to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and our local hospital, Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare. Gillette’s provides unmatched care to children and their families who are dealing with everything from traumatic injuries to cancer treatment and we’re going to do our small part to help make their stays there just a tiny bit easier.

On November 4th, Team Mega Dads will be playing games for 25 hours straight from 8am Saturday until 8am Sunday (you thank daylight savings for the extra hour) and the entire event will be live streamed on the Mega Dads YouTube Channel. You can pledge your support for our team by making a donation at our Extra Life Fundraising Page. Team Mega Dads has raised over $2300 since we began participating in Extra Life and our goal this year is to raise $800.00. Every single penny raised goes to the children and their families, and it’s completely tax deductible.


For the first time this year, we are also opening up our team to our Mega Dads Patrons for those that would like to join our fundraising efforts. If you are currently a Mega Dads Patron and would like to join the team, just shoot us an email to megadadsblog@gmail.com and we’ll get you an invitation sent out!

We’ve also got some great prizes to give away to those who donate to our team this year! Here’s how the giveaway works this year:

For EACH $5 donated to Team Mega Dads, you get ONE raffle ticket for a drawing for one of three Extra Life Prize Packs. We have a Nintendo Prize Pack, a PlayStation Prize Pack, and an Xbox Prize Pack, each one loaded with all sorts of goodies. And you can split your tickets among different prize packs if you wish (example: your donation of $20 can equal 2 tickets in the Nintendo drawing and 2 tickets for the Xbox drawing). Just make note in the comments section of your donation wear you would like your tickets to go. And check back often to see new additions to this list of prizes!

We hope we can count on your support this year as we reach higher than ever and help these amazing children.
