Recruiting Organization: SickKids Foundation



Extra Life unites thousands of players around the world to host gaming marathons in support of local Children's Miracle Network hospitals, like SickKids. Participants play any game from anywhere, anytime, while raising money for their hospital of choice. To date, Extra Life gamers have fundraised over $3.2 million for SickKids! Thanks to the help of their incredible contributions, SickKids is able to deliver the very cutting edge of what is possible in care; break through with research that benefits patients today; and build partnerships to improve care for more children--here and around the world.
