For Myself and All My Friends in the Disability Community


Article written by Doug T., a second-year participant who plays for Children's National Health System.

2017 will be my second year participating in this amazing project, and I'm personally playing for Children's National Medical Center in Washington DC. Having been born with spina bifida, I have needed the services of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals many times in my youth.


They were always there for me, and I am eternally grateful to them for essentially keeping me alive. With the somewhat unpredictable nature of spina bifida, doctors were not sure how long I'd live when I was born. Through the help and amazing treatment from Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, I am proud to say that I just celebrated my 40th birthday last month, and I have no intentions of slowing down.

I've seen the amazing and heartwarming support that Extra Life garners, and I love being a part of this community of gamers. My team and I had a blast last year, and are looking forward to many more to come!



Team Name: Speedercrash
