Join us for Extra Life Game Day!

Since 2008, Gamers involved in Extra Life have been playing games and healing kids treated at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Last year alone, Extra Lifers playing for UPMC Children’s Hospital raised more than $135,000.00.

On Saturday, November 6, Extra Life, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraising program, is hosting their annual Game Day broadcast and we want to share how YOU can get involved:

  • Register to Play games, Heal kids at and select UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
  • Pledge to play games and ask your friends and family to donate.
  • You can play whatever game(s) you like for however long you want on whatever console, platform or place.
  • Not a gamer but still want to help? Donate to a participants page or share about the event on your social media channels.

Find all the resources and best practices you need to make your Extra Life experience the best. And new for this year, the first 150 gamers for UPMC Children’s to raise $150 will receive a custom deck of playing cards featuring art from our patient champion, Rosie. Simply sign up for Extra Life, fill out this form, share your fundraising page with friends and family – then game!
