Got this in my email box a few days ago -
We’re inviting some of the top Extra Lifers in the world to join us in Orlando on November 11-13 for an amazing event called Extra Life United. Part tournament, part celebration, part inspiration, ELU will not only be your chance to meet the kids you’ve helped to save with your fundraising, but it will also provide you an opportunity to do even more for local kids.
The tournament portion of Extra Life United has a prize pool of $100K that’s up for grabs to unlock for your Children’s Miracle Network Hospital! We can only accept a total of 64 people for this experience, and while we plan to open this up to others, we wanted to make sure that you got first crack at it.
Thank you for all you do #ForTheKids. I’m excited to meet you in person!
Hope to see you in Orlando!
For The Kids,
Jeromy ‘Doc’ Adams

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
Join us at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando this November for the inaugural Extra Life United Tournament. You’ll meet the children we serve through Extra Life, connect with other Extra Lifers from across North America, and compete for a chance to win $50,000 or more for your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, or one of your choice.
In the first phase of competition you’ll compete against up to 63 other Extra Lifers for one of four seats in the main event, where qualifiers will go head to head with 12 popular Twitch streamers including CaptainSparklez, Aureylian, and OMGitsfirefoxx. The tournament will be streamed lived by Twitch so your friends, family, and the world can watch as you go for the top prize of $50,000 on behalf of your local hospital.
Up to 64 players compete in one surprise PlayStation 4 title. The final 4 finishers move on to the main event. If you don’t make the final four, there’s still plenty to do, tons to see, and a lot of amazing kids to meet.
The top 4 finishers from the Play-In bracket along with 12 top Twitch personalities will compete head to head in a gauntlet of PlayStation 4 titles, all of which will be kept top secret until players arrive in Orlando. The top 6 players will place “in the money” for their local CMN Hospital. The top 2 finishers will also unlock a pretty sweet experience for themselves.

I got confirmation today, and my plane tickets. There’s still time to donate, and to help me to help kids in need.
I’m on a mission to save kids and I need your help. My local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few.</p>
