Your goal is to build the most creative space that shows your creative interpretation around: when we change kids’ health, we unlock a world of possibilities for their future.

Server information for each Team Captain will be provided to participants on April 9, 2022, after Extra Life United registration closes on April 8, 2022, (register here: Please be sure to fill out your form (details below) TODAY!

Judging for the competition will be based on the most creative world built, with special consideration to designs that include CMN Hospitals and/or Extra Life logos. The builds will be judged live on the Extra Life United Broadcast on Twitch on Thursday, April 14, 2022.

Your creative idea can either be an entire world, or a portion of a world and will be judged based on the following criteria:

  • Creativity
  • Originality
  • Contest theme
  • Usage of the CMN Hospitals Extra Life logo and/or talking points

What can that look like? We believe that positively changing kids’ health can transform patients’ and families’ entire lives. Member children’s hospitals of CMN Hospitals provide the treatments and cures patients desperately need today so that they can fulfill their potential tomorrow, and help families prepare for and cope with some of the hardest moments of their lives.

When we say when we change kids’ health, we unlock a world of possibilities for their future it looks like:

  • For Alexis, it meant benefiting from high-quality rehabilitation treatments at Children’s Specialized Hospital in Mountainside, NJ, after a bike accident and being able to regain her strength and learn how to walk again much sooner. Alexis still bears the physical, mental and emotional scars of her accident, and relies on her Children’s Miracle Network Hospital to support her. Despite her challenges, she has gone on to pursue her dream of becoming an actress, putting smiles on her audiences’ faces.
  • For Bella, a teenager with bipolar disorder, OCD and anxiety, change meant a long-term stay at her Children’s Miracle Network Hospital specializing in caring for kids with mental illness – Shodair Children’s Hospital in Helena, MT. Today, Bella is managing her conditions with medication and therapy, with the help of her Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, while advocating for kids like her.
  • For Zoe, change meant being diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare childhood cancer, after two days of testing at Cohen Children’s Medical Center in New York. If not diagnosed, the illness could have left Zoe paralyzed. After being treated in a clinical trial through the hospital, Zoe is now nine years old and recently earned her black belt in Taekwondo.
