The Cause

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® raises funds & awareness for 170 member hospitals that provide 32 million treatments each year to kids across the U.S. and Canada. Donations stay local to fund critical treatments & healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment & charitable care.

It All Began With One Girl

It all started with a little girl in Orange, Texas. Extra Life unites thousands of gamers around the world to play games in support of their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Every year, 50,000+ people game in her memory and in support of millions of other kids who will benefit from Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. More than 10 million kids enter a children’s hospital like your local children’s hospital across North America every year. To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $7 billion, most of it $1 at a time through Miracle Balloon icon campaigns. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.

Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised over $70 million USD for sick and injured kids. Right now, children’s hospitals need YOUR support. Be a hero.
