For the second year in a row, CMU HCII students, faculty and staff are planning to join the thousands of participants around the world in a 24-hour Extra Life gaming marathon.

Participation in the gaming marathon will take on many forms. The online gamers plan to broadcast live via Twitch throughout the marathon with team members signing up for designated shifts to keep the stream going strong for all 24 hours. Other participants will be playing board games, cards, strategy, as well as interactive group games.

Short of staying up all night and playing Super Smash Bros, Fortnite, or JustDance with us, here are other ways you can help to support the CMU team:

  • Make a donation. Make an online donation to team Carnegie Mellon. Any dollar amount helps, and 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go directly to our local CMN Hospital, Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh!
  • Share the cause. Show your support of the team with a like, share or retweet of our Extra Life team's posts on social media: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram.
  • Tune in online. Join the CMU HCII livestream via Twitch at any point during the marathon weekend to watch the team in action and offer words of encouragement in the chat window.


Thank you for your support!
