Thanks to your generous donations, I raised $340 in Extra Life 2016. The money I raised will go to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
My team raised almost $55,000 and the entire event raised over 6 million dollars!
The 24 hours of gaming was rough – my team went from 12pm EST on Sat. to 12pm EST on Sun. Since I am a morning person, I had already been up for a long time before the event even started. Between 2am – 3:30am my character was just standing around for awhile because I was falling asleep at the computer. The time also changed that night so at 2am, the time went back to 1am and the event was actually 25 hours. I then rallied until about 9:30am. The last 2.5 hours were the worst – I just wanted to take a shower and go to bed. I even thought, “I’m starting to really dislike a game that I usually enjoy playing.”
But, it was worth it and I’m already excited to participate again in 2017.
Donations are accepted until the end of the year. If you thought about donating and would still like to, you didn’t miss out on the opportunity. Donations can be placed here.
Thank you so much for your support.
