On October 20, our local team will be banning together in an event called Extra-Life. As of the last update from Extra-Life there are 13,000 gamer's participating this year and over $1 Million raised so far!
On October 20th will be playing video games 24 hours straight to help sick kids. Over the past few months we have asked Friends and Family to sponsor us per hour that we play video games. The average donation is about $24.
So far our team "The Pixel Heads" comprised of 12 members has raised $3,200.00 We hope to have our overall goal of $5,000 raised by Saturday. If you are from the Augusta, GA area would you consider a donation today If you are from another area you can still support from Extra-Life's main page and the funds will go to your local hospital.
We will be live streaming the event starting at 8 AM EST on October 20, till October 21, 8 AM EST.
We welcome you to tune in and follow us while we game. http://www.twitch.tv/wmoore032
All of the money raised stays local and goes to our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital (with the exception of 2) who are doing this out of our area. Their money will be distributed to their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital.

Kids depend on our help. We challenge you to give up that cup of coffee for the day or Cheeseburger and make it count to something that is important. "William Moore" a member on the Pixel Heads knows from first hand experience how great Children's Miracle Network Hospitals are. Mr. Moore states, "The money and support is greatly needed for CMN Hospitals to become better than they already are. Growing up with an illness, I spent many days in wings of Georgia Health Sciences University (previously known as MCG). It is a great hospital to send your children too and they have wonderful doctors and nurses. This is why I am raising money this year because the program for the children holds a special place in my heart."
