For the sixth year in a row, Team ArenaNet will be supporting Extra Life!
What is Extra Life?
During the annual Extra Life marathon, teams and individuals from many gaming communities stream games for twenty-four hours to raise funds in support of Children’s Miracle Network, a network of 170 nonprofit children’s hospitals throughout the United States and Canada. Donations pay healthcare costs for critically ill and injured children not covered by health insurance or Medicaid, help hospitals purchase pediatric medical equipment, and fund disease research. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals provide 32 million treatments to children every year thanks to events like Extra Life .
Since 2017, Team ArenaNet has raised over $500,000 in donations for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. Our global community of players has come together each year to support this mission, and we’re calling on you all to help us break our fundraising record once again!
During Extra Life 2021, you helped us raise over $100,000 in a single day. This year, we’re aiming even higher. Our goal is to raise $125,000 by the end of our Game Day livestream, and we need help from the legendary heroes of Tyria to make it happen.
This year, during our 24-hour Game Day stream, we have a variety of exciting in-game and out-of-game events planned. Additionally, we’ll be running our second Twitch Drops campaign during the Extra Life Game Day event. We’ll reveal some details about these in the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for more updates from us soon!
Join Team ArenaNet
We’re all working toward the same goal for Extra Life: helping kids! Everyone is invited to be part of Team ArenaNet. To join, visit the official Extra Life website and choose “Team ArenaNet” as your team when you sign up.
If you’d like to create your own team, we invite you to join the ArenaNet Super Team. When you sign up on the official Extra Life website, choose “Create a Sub Team.” Your team will still have its own page, members, and fundraising goals, but you’ll be recognized on the ArenaNet Super Team’s leaderboards and the funds you raise will contribute to the overall Super Team total.
Once you join Team ArenaNet, all donations will contribute to our overall donation total. As in previous years, once we hit the $25,000 goal we’ll match that donation to bring the total to $50,000.
You don’t have to livestream Guild Wars 2 to team up with us. You can stream a game of your choice, or raise funds by telling your friends, family, and colleagues how they can donate to support Extra Life.
Game Day: November 4
The ArenaNet team members are excited to kick off this year’s 24-hour streaming marathon. Our Extra Life Game Day event begins at 12:00 PM Pacific Time on Friday, November 4 and ends at 12:00 PM on Saturday, November 5.
