Greetings, and welcome to Extra Life Pioneer Valley! We are a group of gamers who participate in the annual Extra Life gameathon. We are NOT an independent group, raising our own funds for our own cause; I just wanted to create a small site as a placeholder for our local presence. As I mentioned- we game for the Extra Life organization, and you can find their link to the right.
The "nickel tour" of Extra Life is that it is a national organization that holds an annual 24-hour gameathon to raise money for local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (in our case it's Baystate Children's Hospital). It doesn't matter what you play, or where you play it- the purpose is to get pledges for the gameathon, whatever the form that your gameathon takes.
The site is very basic for now, but in time we hope that it will provide a place for all things Extra Life.
(Holy smokes, I'm gonna need to develop an online calendar this year!)
