What is ExtraLife?
Did you know that each day, cancer claims a classroom full of children in the United States alone? Do you realize that the money that comes to help find a cure for cancer in kids, comes almost completely from private donations?

There is NO bailout coming for our kids with leukemia, lymphoma, sarcoma or any of the disgusting variety of cancers that children face.

These are some of the inspiring words written on the website for the Extra Life charity. Extra Life is a 24-hour gaming marathon which has the goal of raising money for the Children's Miracle Network.

This is the third year that this charity marathon has gone on, and last year was an amazing success. We hope to help make it a great success this year as well.

There is more information on the charity at the website. You can go there to read inspirational stories and get all sorts of news and events that are going on.
