Another update to the wonderful (busy) month of October!
First off, I hate when schedules collide. Today is officially the kick off to the Extra Life gaming marathons (which is simply the coolest charity drive out there). The ultimate goal is to raise funds for your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital – and participate in a 24hr gaming marathon.
Unfortunately, Young Drivers’ weekend class bumped the possibility of participating in a straight marathon of gaming. Which isn’t all bad, as I desperately need assistance in my driving skills and knowledge simply to earn some confidence behind the wheel. (It’s working so far!).
So while I may not be putting in 24 hours of gaming today, I will be putting in some gaming hours this week to complete the ‘marathon’ aspect of this fantastic event.
It may be a little late to join in this year. But please consider supporting an extra-lifer you know, or visiting my fund raising page, and supporting a great cause. Even if you are simply sharing a link to the Charity’s website… Extra life still needs your support!
The extra life community is amazing and I am looking forward to next year already.. I hope you will consider joining the cause as well.
Overall I am excited for both events this weekend – driving and gaming – they mix well… Right?! :0)
Ps. I am at roughly 61% of my goal as I am writing this post. My goal is to raise $200 for Sick Kids hospital by November 1st (at the very latest). This is super exciting & I am proud to be a part of it!
