Don't miss Extra Life — Nov. 6th!

ModSquad Participates in Extra Life 2016

At ModSquad, many of us are passionate gamers; board games, mobile games, console or PC video games — you name it, we’ve probably played it!

And what do we love as much as games? Supporting great causes! Each year around this time, we give up one night of sleep to help sick and injured children. On November 5, we’ll start our video game marathon to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. This all-nighter is our contribution to Extra Life, and we’d love for you to join us!

What is Extra Life?

Extra Life is a 24-hour gaming charity event that began in 2008 and has since raised over $22 million for local Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. The annual event was inspired by Victoria Enmon, a spirited young woman who unfortunately lost her battle with childhood cancer.

As ModSquad, this is our third year participating in Extra Life, which we livestream from our headquarters in Sacramento, California. It means so much to us to take part in an event that continues to grow every year. After all, more participants means more donations to help save lives!

Donate now to support our team and the UC Davis Children’s Hospital!

ModSquad Combines Old and New School for Extra Life 2016

You won’t want to miss what we have planned this year. Not only will be playing with the newest video game technology around, but we’re also taking our time machine back to the ’90s, when CD-ROMs were new and full-motion video represented the future of video games!img_20161018_141101

Join us in exploring virtual reality with PlayStation VR and laughing through the cheesiest live video games ever made on Sega CD. You can find the full schedule on our Extra Life profile.

Playing video games and staying awake doesn’t do anything on its own. We need your help to make this happen. Please tell your friends and family, share our links on social media, watch our livestream, and donate what you can. Every contribution helps, and ALL proceeds go directly to helping kids.

Follow us on Twitch and tune in November 5 at 8 AM PT.

Here are what some of our Mods who’ve participated in years past had to say:

“I’ve been participating in Extra Life since 2014 and enjoy it very much. I love marathoning video games and getting closer with coworkers while eating pizza. It’s a fun and awesome way to raise money for children’s hospitals!”
—Ryan Bulan

“It’s really great fun to do the stream; it’s nice to work at a place where I don’t mind sticking around for a whole day and hanging out with coworkers playing video games! The best part is that every dollar we raise goes straight to UC Davis Children’s Hospital to fund important research and equipment to enable sick children to get the help they need!”
—Chelsea Vaughn
