Thank You all for an Awesome Extra-Life 2019

Extra-Life 2019 has come to an end and it was fantastic! We raised a ton of money for The Children's Miracle Network and even won some prizes for ourselves!

We are already planning for Extra-Life 2020 which will be our 10th year! 

We could not do it without all of your support!

Epic Nordic survival in Rune II

Rune II press preview with Fog and friends, and after three days of grinding out games to help out kids in need, Aidyn has official finished his extralife 2019 tour! Aidyn brought in 40 dollars in donations all by himself! Great job Aidyn!

Much fun in Paladins


Hi-Rez Studios is awesome and Paladins proves it. Free to play, cross-platform, first-person goodness. We are so glad that Gaiscioch added this to the Extra-Life schedule. Sit back, relax, and watch the bots kick our butts because we are really really bad, but it is still super fun!

More frontiering.. this time with friends!
Well.. sad to say that Fog was unable to get his copy of TLF to work.  =(

Pioneering the Frontiers with steam power!

Building railways through Torchlight Frontiers while Aidyn destroys the Covenant in Halo 5.

Sorry a little late this morning

Aidyn is already off and running with some more TitanFall 2. I was trying to make a pretty schedule to show all that they played and their hours, but even with Daylight savings time, it's too early.

So let's talk about the Janet Weis Hospital that we are supporting this year.

The Janet Weis Children's Hopital is located in Danville, Pa.

It doesn't serve a big city, it serves hundreds of small towns through out Central and Northeast Pennsylvania.  Among an area that seems to be forgotten by time, Janet Weis CH has state of the technology and keeps on the edge of new equipment and education. 

It  doesn’t matter if you live in a rural or urban area, when a child is seriously ill, injured or facing a life-threatening condition, our pediatric specialists can step in immediately, using state-of-the-art technology to provide emergency, trauma and critical care

I love this paragraph pulled from the hospital website. Living in a "bigger town"  with a population of 8000, it's easy to feel insignificant compared to big cities with millions and tons of money.  It's great for our kids to be able to get top of the line care without having to drive hours to Philadelphia, Hershey or Pittsburgh.  So even though most people may not know where the Janet Weis hospital is or even where Danville is, it's one of the most important places for children and teenagers in these patch coal towns of Pennsylvania.
