Hey all! This is my 6th year as a registered participate of Extra Life for the WVGamers team but 8th year being active in the organization. This year also marks my first year as the President for the WVU Extra Life Guild! Let's go Mountaineers! I love helping build this amazing organization up in the state of West Virginia and spreading the love of what Extra Life is all about, playing games and fundraising to help our local children's hospital. We are very fortunate to have our local hospital about an hour from our home! Many families that have to utilize our hospital have a lot longer to travel, but with help of individuals that donate to my page and other individuals pages from WV, help ease that burden. 100% of your donations stay local, meaning 100% of your donations go straight to WVU Medicine Children's Hospital located in Morgantown, WV! Not many charities can say that!
This is the 11th year of Extra Life, which started in TX for a young girl named Victoria! Unfortunately, Victoria did end up passing away from her illness. She lives on in each of the gamers that are willing to pick up the controller, pick up the meeple, pick up the card, or pick up the football to help raise funds for their local CMN Hospital.
My team, WVGamers, have some amazing ideas to help reach our fundraising goal for the year. We will be doing an event each quarter, and most Saturdays, we will be demonstrating different games at our local games store, Four Horsemen of Clarksburg and will be talking up Extra Life 2019!
