  1. Greetings, Philly gamers. Who am I? I am a dad of two amazing kids who has employed the services of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (and will likely do so again at some point). I have friends and extended family who have also depended on the services CHOP provides. As such, I have a growing number of reasons to want to support a hospital that does so much for the kiddos. But what to do? . . . I discovered Extra Life during the 2017 Greater Philadelphia Comic Con. I stumbled upon the Extra Life table while wandering the expo floor. I was puzzled at first, wondering why anyone would pay someone to play games. Once I got past the newness of the idea and convinced myself that it was no different than getting paid to run/bike/swim for a cause, I decided that to find a way to participate in an Extra Life event. I wasn't sure where to look for support. In April 2017, I posted to a Facebook gaming group, the Invictus Stream, of my interest in Extra Life. Harlan Guthrie, one of the group's founders, took up my suggestion with extreme gusto with only the gentlest of nudges. The Invictus Stream raised over $5000 for various Children's Miracle Network hospitals in 2017. My first Extra Life was a super special day, and I knew that I wanted to participate again. Which brings me to 2018 and beyond . . . @Kevin Doctimus I am keeping my Extra Life 2018 small, but I am totally down with helping to organize a small to mid to large scale event for 2019. Cheers
