Extra Life 2020 Is Next Week

Team ArenaNet’s Extra Life Game Day is next week on November 6! With your help, we’ve already raised over $5,000 USD in 2020 to support Children’s Miracle Network hospitals.

This year we’re gaming harder than ever to raise funds for the care of ill and critically injured children. Your donations also help hospitals buy pediatric medical equipment, fund disease research, and invest in personal protective equipment and critical services needed during the COVID-19 pandemic. This year your donations will benefit the Children’s Hospitals COVID-19 Impact Fund.

To donate to Extra Life now, visit the Team ArenaNet page. If you’d like to help us reach our goal by streaming any game or telling your friends and family about Extra Life, choose to join Team ArenaNet when you sign up! If you want to form your own team, you can select “Create a sub team” when you sign up to join the ArenaNet Super Team.

The funds you raise as a member of Team ArenaNet will contribute to our overall donation total. As in previous years, if we reach the $25,000 USD donation goal, ArenaNet will match it!

Extra Life Game Day Livestream

On Game Day, members of Team ArenaNet participate in a 24-hour gaming marathon to raise funds, have fun, and hang out with the community. The stream begins on Friday, November 6 at noon Pacific Time (UTC-8) and ends on Saturday, November 7 at noon Pacific Time (UTC-8).

During the livestream, Team ArenaNet will play Guild Wars® and Guild Wars 2 content, offer personal donation milestone incentives, and talk about what Extra Life means to them. Join them in game or watch the stream on our official Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook channels. We’ll see you there!
