Like to play video games? Like to save kids lives? Keep reading! Here's an
event to do both, at the same time.
On a Saturday in November each year since 2008, tens of thousands of gamers
have joined together to save the lives of local kids in a celebration of
gaming culture that we call Extra Life. From console games to tabletop
RPG's to even lawn sports, Extra Life gives people that love to play a
chance to do what they love to save lives and make a difference. Your
average afternoon of playing whatever you like to play can be turned into
you being part of an incredible movement.
To participate in Extra Life at University of Maryland, you need only sign
up (free) under Terp Thon team. Simply ask your friends and family to
sponsor your efforts. They can make a monthly pledge or a one-time gift.
Then, have a seat and play games on November 2nd (or ANY day that works for
you!) play ANY game(s) you want on any platform(s) that you want for as
long as you want.
Terp Thon will be coordinating a central location for you to game at. A
minimum of $25 fundraised will get you into the event, and $50 raised will
get you a meal the day of the event. Reach out to your parents, friends,
neighbors, old teachers - anyone who would like to sponsor you in doing
what you love while you help the kids!
With your help we can set a new record and save so many more kids!
