I had a great time last year and will taking part this year. Funny you mention this as the first promo email arrived with me this morning. (copied below)
I'm sure the VG Hub Team will rise to the challenge again. 11 of us raised over $3600 so with a big effort and a few more team members we can do even better.
Get involved. The most fun you can have raising money for sick kids in your area.
We're excited to announce the date for the 2012 Extra Life marathon! On Saturday October 20th, 2012 we will once again pick up controllers, iPads and mice in support of our local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
Now that's a long way off, but we're hard at work RIGHT NOW getting your new 2012 Extra Life website ready, and we need your help to finish it up.
Confession time: Get ready.
Last year, (gulp) we used a "stock image" of a "gamer" on the website.
I know. I know.
This year, we're including only ACTUAL extra life players, alongside the kids we're all here to save, which is where you come in.
If you'd like the chance for your lovely mug to be on display, grab a camera, snap a picture of yourself, and post it on our Facebook Page at http://facebook.com/sgExtraLife
We're going to be picking a bunch of these photos to create this year's website.
Thank you for your help! More news coming soon!
