Extra Life

Extra Life: 24 hours of gaming for charity! (November 4th, noon)

Tech Valley Game Space will once again be hosting a fun-filled marathon of Extra Life festivities in Troy, and we want you to join us! Let’s work together to surpass our fundraising goals and make a difference for the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center, as well as other Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals throughout North America.

Our team is on a mission to save kids through gaming, and we need your help. Each of us has chosen our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital where thousands of children are treated each year, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few.

We’ll be part of a huge international celebration of the social impact of gamers with Extra Life and it’s our sincere hope that you’ll find it in your heart to support us with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to that team member’s chosen hospital.Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids. Last year, Extra Life raised more than $8 million dollars to save kids, but in 2016 our goals, just like the needs of the kids we serve, are much, much higher. We can’t do this without your help. Donating online is safe and easy! To make an online donation please click a participant’s name and then click the “Support This Participant” button on this page. Thank you for caring for our kids!

Join our team!
