Join our TrueAchievements Extra Life team and help us raise $15,000 for charity!

By Sean Carey,
After yet another extremely successful fundraising event, we are happy to promote the official TrueAchievements Extra Life team, which will aim to raise $15,000 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals throughout the US and Canada. Our Extra Life 2021 Hub is now live, and we've detailed how you can get involved or support this year's fantastic bunch of streamers.

Extra Life 2021 TrueAchievements

What is Extra Life?

Extra Life gives gamers the opportunity to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Children's Miracle Network Hospitals is a non-profit organisation that raises funds for sick and injured children throughout the US and Canada. The organisation's donations are distributed to 170 hospitals throughout the two countries and are used for medical research and financially supporting sick and injured children and their families who are staying at one of their hospitals. These hospitals provide 32 million treatments each year to children.

To help support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, each year, gamers from across the world raise money for the charity by taking part in a 24-hour gaming marathon and streaming their efforts. This year, game day is set for November 6th. While a 24-hour gaming marathon does sound pretty intense, don't worry; participants can choose their own start time, how long they want to play for, and what they want to play.

Over $87 million has been raised since Extra Life's inception, including a huge $17.4 million last year. During Extra Life 2019, the TrueAchievements team smashed its goal of $10,000, raising $14,344.45 in the process.

For more information, be sure to check out the Extra Life project and Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals.
