About our Extra Life Event

image21

Hello Average Joes

 Welcome to our Extra Life team fundraising page! Our team is on a mission to help sick and injured kids in our local communities. Each of us has chosen our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital that treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their illness, injury or even their family's ability to pay.

We need your help to reach our goal For The Kids!

Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. To donate just click the extra life logo and it will take you to our team page. Click the donate button and you will recieve an email shortly after with a tax reciept for your donation.

We will be hosting out 24 hour game day on June 15th starting at 8 a.m.


Why are we holding this event? 

We are holding this event to help out other families in the Sioux Falls Area. When Jess was working at Youth Enrichment Services (now Boys and Girls Club of the Sioux Empire) she had a little girl in her class that was diagnosed with cancer. Jess was the lead teacher in the Two and a half year old room. This little girl would light up our room at the center. Jess was pregnant with our youngest daughter at the time and Sophia would ask about Jess' baby every day. Sophia was so excited for the baby, she was full of life and sass (as most 2 year old's are). Sophia had been sick for several weeks and her parents took her in to the ER. There they did some blood work and that is when they got the news. From that day on Sophia did not return to our classroom. It was very hard for Jess to be pregnant and get the news that one of her students was now very sick and would not be returning. 

That is the sad bit of our story. The good news is that Sophia is healthy now and going strong. We as a family have been blessed with six healthy children. Only two of our boys have spent time in the NICU. Our family thanks God every day for this blessing. We are hoping to help other families that are not as lucky. This is our way of helping and bringing our hobby to others. 


What kind of Activities will be at the event?

We will have food, beverages, board games, video games, and possible some special super hero guests.


Thank you so much for supporting our efforts!

Extra Life is a fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

  • I'm joining thousands of gamers and will be dedicating a day to play games and get donations from friends like YOU!
  • 100% of the donations go to my local children's hospital. TOGETHER we will make a difference for sick kids!

Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them.
