Since 2008, Extra Life has been a fundraising program of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Participants fund-raise year-round and pledge a day of gaming with one goal: to save and improve the lives of sick and injured kids. Last year alone, Extra Lifers playing for Stormont Vail Health raised more than $5,000 for the 46,000 Kansas kids that the Children’s Miracle Network of Stormont Vail serves.

Extra Lifers raise money year-round, culminating in a massive international day of play each fall and ultimately celebrating one grand total together, which took place on November 2nd this year. Stormont Vail’s community of Extra Lifers did a phenomenal job this year representing Stormont Vail Health. Many thanks goes to all those who took part in fundraising by playing games. We appreciate all that the time, dedication, and the passion our volunteers put in.

You too can become involved and we have shared how:

  • Register to Play games, Heal kids at and select Stormont Vail Health
  • Pledge to play games and ask your friends and family to donate.
  • You can play whatever game(s) you like for however long you want on whatever console, platform or place.
  • Not a gamer but still want to help? Donate to a participants page or share about the event on your social media channels.

Find all the resources and best practices you need to make your Extra Life experience the best.
