Game Day to Support Boston Children’s Hospital for a Day of Fun

November 5, 2020

Game Day, is a virtual gaming event that will bring together families and gamers alike for a day of fun and fundraising. Boston Children’s Hospital is working with Extra Life to host Game Day.

On Saturday, November 7, participants will be encouraged to gather family or friends virtually to play anything from their favorite board game to online video games – all in the spirit of raising funds to support patient care and lifesaving research at Boston Children’s, the nation’s top pediatric hospital. Participants can also follow along with other gamers as games are streamed on Twitch.

To participate, players will sign-up at and choose Boston Children’s Hospital, play their games and donate what they can to the hospital. Money raised through the event will benefit many areas of Boston Children’s Hospital, through its Every Child Fund. This fund fuels promising research and vital family services not covered by insurance. Every penny raised goes directly to helping kids.

Extra Life unites thousands of gamers around the world in support of local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $70 million for sick and injured kids.

“For twenty years, the Extra Life program has been connecting gamers all over the country to support families at Boston Children’s Hospital,” said Erin Keefe, development coordinator, Boston Children’s Hospital Trust. “There are over 1,700 gamers who are committed to Extra Life throughout the year leading up to our big national Game Day in November. Last year alone, our Extra Life program raised over $400K to help patients and families at Boston Children’s.”
