Hey all! Another Game Day weekend has come and gone — and it was a good one! The Extra Life community raised more than $3,322,193.71 over the weekend — bringing the program to $10,088,728.73 raised year to date in 2021! AMAZING JOB!!

Game Day is what it is because of YOU! Now more than ever, philanthropy is crucial to ensure children’s hospitals are supported so that kids continue to receive the best care possible – no matter life’s circumstances. Donations can transform how children’s hospitals meet the urgent needs brought on by the pandemic, while still maintaining an exceptional standard of care and well-being. THANK YOU for all your efforts to Change Kids Health and Change the Future at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Looked pretty awesome, huh? You know, if we recapped all the generosity, gameplay, pies in the face, beard/head shavings and BeanBoozleds consumed into one recap video, it’d be years long!  We are now even closer to raising our $100 millionth dollar since 2008.

Thanks to all who tagged and engaged with us on social! It was a staff highlight to get to share in your successes virtually.

Now that Game Day is over, we have just a few more weeks to raise funds to change kids’ health in 2021. We’re nearing our $100 million raised milestone since 2008. You could be the person that pushes us past that milestone. Donations go to local hospitals to fund critical life-saving treatments and healthcare services, along with innovative research, vital pediatric medical equipment, child life services that put kids’ and families’ minds at ease during difficult hospital stays and financial assistance for families who could not otherwise afford these health services.
