For the past two years, ArenaNet has participated in Extra Life alongside the Guild Wars 2 community. Together we’ve donated over $80,000 USD to benefit Children’s Miracle Network! We’d love to make this year’s Extra Life the biggest yet, so we’re calling on all Tyria’s heroes.
Donate to Extra Life
Help us reach our funding goal by visiting our team page and donating to Extra Life. When we raise $25,000 USD, ArenaNet will match the donation for a total of $50,000!
Our Game Day livestream will kick off with Guild Chat at noon Pacific Time (UTC-7) on Friday, November 1 and end at noon Pacific Time (UTC-7) on Saturday, November 2. Watch the livestream, jump into the game with us, and donate! We’ll have plenty of surprises and fun to celebrate in both Tyria and the real world.
What Is Extra Life?
Extra Life is an event dedicated to raising funds for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals, a network of 170 nonprofit children’s hospitals in the United States and Canada. All proceeds help these hospitals pay for care that is not covered by insurance and Medicaid, as well as funding research and pediatric medical equipment. Extra Life has raised over $50 million USD for CMN hospitals since its founding in 2008.
Extra Life raises funds all year long, but the first Saturday in November of each year is designated as Game Day, a massive community celebration in which gamers around the world participate in sponsored gaming marathons to help raise money. You can stream your own gameplay or keep Extra Life participants company by cheering them on!
