We came, we saw, we gamed for the kids! Thank you to everyone who helped us make our Extra Life fundraiser such a huge success! We ended up surpassing our goal and raising over $6,400 for the Montreal’s Children Hospital and Opération Enfant Soleil!

Above are some of the highlights from our 24h gaming marathon for Extra Life 2014. What starts as gaming and fund raising exploits quickly degenerates into sleep deprived craziness.

Thanks to CHOM 97 7 and Bell Media for hosting our event, to CHOM, CJAD and NRJ for letting us come on air to talk about Extra Life, to everyone who participated, to everyone who donated, to our corporate donorsComic Bento and Altitube Steel, and to Ubisoft Montreal, WB Games, Xbox Canada and Nintendo of Canada for providing some of the games we played.

Mario Kart 8
Injustice: Gods Among Us
Wii Party U
