Help Children’s Miracle Network at UF Health Shands Hospital and join the efforts of thousands of gamers who have band together to save the lives of local kids in a celebration of gaming culture called Extra Life. From console games to board games to even lawn sports, Extra Life gives people who love to play a chance to save lives and make a difference.

All you have to do is play—whenever, wherever and for however long you would like. To participate, all you need to do is sign up for free and gather the support of your friends and family through tax-deductible donations to Children’s Miracle Network at UF Health Shands Hospital. Then on Saturday, Nov. 2 – or any day that works for you – start playing!

Since 2008, the incredible Extra Life players have raised more than 4 million dollars, and this year, on November 2nd, 2013, we believe they will outdo themselves yet again.

With your help we can set a new record and save so many more kids!


Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals supports healthy and safe gaming for kids. If you have questions or concerns about your child’s gaming, please visit for resources on healthy gaming habits for kids.
