You know about running and cycling marathons raising money for charity, but have you heard of a 25-hour gaming marathon? That’s right! A charity gaming marathon that lasts 25 hours!
Liquid Web will be streaming its Extra Life Charity event on November 5th to raise money for local children’s hospitals.
Extra Life is a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraising program that empowers the gaming community to make a difference in the lives of local kids.”
All donations go to the Children’s Miracle Network and stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, and charitable care.
As Liquid Web is a member of the tech industry and employs many tech-savvy individuals, many of these employees are PC, console, board, and tabletop gamers.
Extra Life is an excellent way to get the entire group together to socialize, have fun playing games, and raise money for a great cause. This year’s event has their Helpful Humans having fun not only remotely but in person too!
How Many Years has Liquid Web Participated in this Event?
This year will be their seventh year participating in the Extra Life 25-hour marathon. The event is held annually on the Saturday before Daylight Savings Time ends to get in that extra hour of game time, but teams can raise money for their chosen children’s hospital all year long.
The Liquid Web event will take place on November 5th, 2022. Last year, they raised just under $4,000 between the teams, so they hope to raise $5,000 this year. They will have teams participating from the United States in Michigan, Texas, Arizona, and New York.
Teams: Keeping it in the Family (of Brands)
This year they have the Family of Brands going head-to-head-to-head in a video gaming, board gaming, and scavenger hunting extravaganza!
