Extra Life June 2017 Newsletter


In the infamous words of Ferris Bueller, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” I don’t know about you, but it seems like this year is flying by with no sight of slowing down. 


In an effort to stop and look around, here’s our monthly update to let you all know the important news from around the community. Buckle in, because you’re the best gaming has to offer!

Extra Life at E3 2017

With help from the Orange County and Los Angeles Guilds, Extra Life headed to E3 for the 6th year in a row to raise awareness for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the children we serve. We recruited over 300 new Extra Lifers and launched a new initiative called Bits for Kids, where Twitch partners and affiliates can donate their bits to Extra Life. Learn more about Bits for Kids here, and also check out some pictures from our time at E3 here.

Extra Life United 2017 Recap Video Released



Extra Life United is an annual gaming tournament held in Orlando, FL that brings together some of the most passionate Extra Life Community members while giving them a chance to unlock funds for their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. We took a look back at ELU 2017 by releasing this recap video to remind us of the amazing memories and that this is not game over for the sick and injured kids treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Community Update

We are 4 months out from Game Day and over 13,000 people have signed up to play games and heal kids! We have also raised close to $1.2 million – INCREDIBLE! Thank you for your dedication to the children we serve.




We Remember An Angel

June 15th would have been Victoria Enmon’s 25th birthday. Happy Birthday to the little girl from Texas who inspired the Extra Life movement for millions of kids treated at children’s hospitals. We love and miss you, Tori!




We have accomplished so much together, so let’s all keep pushing forward for fun, fellowship, and – as always….


For The Kids,    

Mike, Liz, Lou and Jeromy
