Extra Life – Play Games. Heal Kids.

Dungeons & Dragons Extra Life Team

This time of year, the Extra Life charity event takes place, and the Dungeons & Dragons Team is taking on a $50,000 donation goal this year for Extra Life.  Our team has raised $46k so far, and I am a participant in the team, and I am half-way to my set goal of $250. Each participant is able to work on a team and choose their own Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to support. Below is Victori Enmon’s story, and the Extra Life Charity was created in her honor in 2008.

East Tennessee Children’s Hospital

I am playing in support East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. ETCH is one of four state-designated Comprehensive Regional Pediatric Centers in Tennessee, and the only hospital in eastern Tennessee dedicated exclusively to the care of children. Primary service area includes eastern Tennessee, southwestern Virginia, southeastern Kentucky and western North Carolina. Children’s Hospital houses 152 beds and offers medical and surgical sub-specialties such as cardiology, pediatric neurology and pediatric hematology/oncology. The hospital also has a pediatric Rehabilitation Center and operates a Home Health Care program.


So why do I want to help raise money through Extra Life?  Because right now all 4 of my children are healthy, and there are so many other children that are not. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.

If you can, please help and sponsor my game and this charity. With your sponsorship, I will be able to reach my (very modest) fundraising goal of $250 by making a small donation to help East Tennessee Children’s Hospital treat kids. I am asking that each person that can read this post to support me, and donate 25$ sponsorship for our game.

Tomb of Horrors!

I will be hosting a D&D game that is Halloween themed, and we have decided to run a Tomb of Horrors game.  The players will all be under 18, and they will have pre-generated characters that are 10th level, and wearing costumes while playing. Sounds like fun right? We will be starting:

Saturday October 25th at 10:00 am eastern.

So please sponsor me by donating $25 or more by using the Donate Link: [[Donate Link]].

Thank you very much,
