What Extra Life Means to Us: Video Premiere
At ModSquad, we take social good seriously. That’s why, for the past five years, we’ve participated in Extra Life, an amazing fundraising event centered around supporting sick children and their families. Best of all, it combines two of our true loves — gaming and community — for a great cause. For the past few weeks, we’ve been ramping up for the annual 24 hour gaming extravaganza, joining others across the globe on November 3 to raise money and awareness for this amazing cause.
Our dedication to Extra Life spans back to 2014, with our level of participation growing larger and larger every year. In honor of our fifth year of fundraising, let’s take a look back at how we’ve supported this great cause over the years.
Extra Life’s mission to support sick children and their families touches close to home. We’ve had members of ModSquad benefit directly from the aid the Children’s Miracle Network hospitals offer to sick kids. When her son fell ill, ModSquad’s Director of People Operations Gina Miller was able to see firsthand the value and importance of the work that Extra Life supports.
ModSquad founder and CEO Amy Pritchard had the privilege of taking her daughter Mary to play in this year’s Extra Life United tournament at Walt Disney World. As Amy explained, “We met the most incredible children that have benefited from Extra Life fundraising and were completely blown away by the passion of everybody involved.”
ModSquad’s contributions have grown steadily over the years. In 2017, Extra Life advised us that the money we raised was enough to support a chemotherapy treatment, or heart monitor for a child in need. Nothing feels better than seeing the tangible benefits of your dedication to social good.
As we head into our fifth year of participation, we are ramping up our efforts — to epic proportions! This year we’ve added 24-hour live streaming from ModSquad’s Operations Centers in Sacramento, Austin, and Derry, as well as Tennessee, in an effort to get our global audience invested in the work Extra Life does to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network. As the donations come in, we’ll have some fun challenges for our onsite participants that you won’t want to miss. See a roundup of all of ModSquad’s Extra Life events.
We’ve got a special enticement that will effectively help contributors double their donations: In honor of our fifth year supporting this great cause, ModSquad will be making a special dollar-for-dollar contribution of up to $5,000, based on donations to Team ModSquad. To bolster the impact this amazing charity can have in the hospital communities they serve, please consider supporting the cause.This entry was posted in News and Events. Bookmark the permalink.
