Extra Life Dayton For The Win on Game Day!

We are still smiling from what Extra Life Dayton accomplished on national game day at the beginning of this month. People all over the world were playing games to change kids’ health and change the future and the energy and enthusiasm was off the charts! There’s no denying the ELD community’s passion for raising critical funds and awareness for Dayton Children’s Hospital.

Just during Game Day weekend, ELD raised more than $13,000 for kids treated at the hospital!

To give you perspective, that is enough to purchase four new video game systems for our waiting areas. As you know, there’s nothing that helps you escape from the world for a little while more than getting into a game. We love to offer these video games in the waiting rooms so children can relax and take their minds off their upcoming appointment or procedure.

My friend Brody passed along his thanks to everyone who has participated in some way to Extra Life Dayton! Together, you have reached a huge milestone by raising over $40,000 this year… But we’re not done yet!

Haven’t signed up yet for 2021? You’ve still got time!

Didn’t quite get around to signing up again this year before the marathon? The beautiful thing about Extra Life is you’ve got until the end of the year to raise funds for kids in our community!

Another beautiful thing? The perfect day for another push is just around the corner. #GivingTuesday comes after Thanksgiving and is a world-wide day of philanthropy, celebrated after the rush of the holiday shopping days (Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday). You can be a #GivingTuesday champion for Dayton Children’s through your Extra Life fundraising page!

Keep in touch!

The marathon may be over, but this community lives on. If you haven’t joined our Discord server yet, take a moment now to do so, as well as our Facebook page. We’ll still be active for the rest of the year and beyond!
