If you have a kid who won’t stop playing video games—or if you ARE a kid who won’t stop playing video games—listen up. Now you can pledge to play video games for a full 24 hours to raise money for charity. Extra Life Game Day is a marathon, virtual, Cincinnati-wide gaming event, with proceeds going to the Children’s Hospitals COVID-19 Impact Fund. The event is sponsored by The INTERalliance of Greater Cincinnati, a nonprofit whose mission is to inspire young people to get involved with IT, and IT company ZeroDay Technology Solutions.
The event begins at 8 a.m. on November 7 and continues for 24 hours. Participants will play Smash, Valorant, League of Legends, and Overwatch. Those who want to show off their bodacious gaming skills can stream their games via Twitch. Players are encouraged to invite friends and family to donate for the cause.
