Extra Life 2014

By Dave Horobin, 2 years ago
Last year, Team TrueAchievements members helped raise an amazing $9,415.45 for The Children's Miracle Network during the 24 hour Extra Life gaming marathon - almost double our $5,000 site goal. This year we'd like to take it even further by getting as many of you as possible involved in Extra Life 2014 to help us smash this year's goal of $10,000 on October 25th.

For those of you who are unsure of what Extra Life is, I'd urge you to visit their site here, and watch the video about how it all began, and how your time and even a small donation can help change the lives of children and their families when they need it most.

If you'd like to take part as part of Team TrueAchievements, you can register here, set your personal fund raising goal and choose a hospital to support.

Once you've registered on the Extra Life site, in order for us to track your progress and add you to the Extra Life 2014 Hub, please join the the TA Leaderboard and post in the participants thread linked below.

Whilst the official Extra Life 2014 event takes place on October 25th, if you can't take part that day then you can choose another date that suits you to do your 24 hour gaming marathon. If, like myself, real life obstacles stop you from doing your own marathon, you can, of course, still make a difference by placing a donation (no matter how large or small) to any of our registered gamers, or by helping raise awareness by sharing the Event Hub with your friends and family on your social network of choice.

If you have any questions feel free to drop our Community and Events Manager, Chad and Jessie, Team TrueAchievement Captain, imaidiot19, or myself a PM, or post in the comments below.
