Extra Life is almost here, and GameKoop is gearing up for the big day! For those who aren’t familiar with the cause, Extra Life began as a way of honoring a young lady named Victoria Enmon, who succumbed to acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2008. Every year since then, Extra Life has organized a way for the gaming community to participate in a 24-hour video game marathon to raise money for children in need of medical help. All donations go to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Starting tomorrow, October 25th at 8:00 am (EDT) and ending on October 26th at 8:00 am (EDT), several staff members of GameKoop will be partaking in a live video stream while plowing through all types of video games for 24 hours straight. It’s going to be a blast, and for an awesome cause, so we urge you to check out the live stream on GameKoop’s Twitch channel.
GameKoop’s Team Funding Goal
The GameKoop team had set a collective team funding goal of $1,000 and surpassed it within 3 days! Really amazing stuff, and we couldn’t have done it without the help from our generous supporters. As a result of reaching our funding goal, GameKoop will be donating an electric blue Nintendo 2DS handheld system to our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, in addition to our total funds raised!
But, that’s not all…
Several team members have vouched to raise the stakes if they hit their own personal funding goals. Anything from buzzing their head, dying their hair blue or donating up to $500 out of their own pocket, the GameKoop staff is ready and willing to raise even more to support these kids. The best part is, some of us have already hit our personal goals and will be performing our promised acts live on our stream.
Whether you plan on watching the stream or not, we kindly ask that you check out each of our stories to learn more about why this fundraising event is so important to each of us. If you’d like to support the cause donate to your favorite GameKoop staff member or just tune in to our stream and enjoy the show! Thank you for supporting our efforts!
