In 2015, we at Funkhouser ran our first Extra Life Tabletop Gaming Marathon in support of Kentucky Children’s Hospital, playing tabletop games for over 12 hours. During that fundraiser, we raised $2000 for Kentucky Children’s Hospital. This year, we’re back at it again!
We’ve raised our goal from last year’s mark of $2000 to $3,000, and we know we can do it with your help. Entering today, we’ve already raised $825.
Our game day will take place on Sunday, November 13th from 11am-10pm. I along with Nick Roush and Funkhouser’s Matthew Mahone will be in attendance over the course of the day.

Extra Life started in 2008 as a way to honor a young lady named Victoria Enmon, who was battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia. A gaming community was inspired by her story, and after she passed, created a 24-hour gaming marathon to raise money for Enmon’s hospital who helped her fight. Seven years later, Extra Life raised 8.3 Million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in 2015 alone, and this year we’re going to do our part to help again.
