Game for the kids at Boston Children’s

Join thousands around the world to game and fundraise for kids at local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals—yours is Boston Children’s! See why gamers, like you, join Extra Life Boston in this video.

How Extra Life works

Play your favorite games (video, tabletop or physical) to power up kids at Boston Children’s. Visit extra-life.org to register. Set a fundraising goal of $100 or more, and choose Boston Children’s Hospital as your Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

You’ll receive fundraising tools to help you reach your goal. Ask friends and family to support your efforts with a donation to your fundraising page. Our Extra Life Boston team will share tips and more tools along the way.

Play on Tabletop Appreciation Weekend (April 12-14, 2024), Game Day (November 2, 2024), or choose your own day to play.

How your gaming helps kids

Your participation in Extra Life supports the Every Child Fund at Boston Children’s Hospital. Every dollar you raise provides lifesaving answers to kids, advances promising research, and helps fund vital services not covered by insurance —like Boston Children’s Patient Family Housing and Child Life programs.

From asthma and broken bones to diseases so rare they don’t have names—your generosity helps sick children and their families heal. Thank you.

Meet Emmie, Rosie and Frannie. See how you can change the lives of families like theirs.
