Holy cow, gamers!
You did it! You stayed up for 25 hours in support of sick kids and raised a TON of money! Thanks to the efforts of fundraisers like you, we raised over $215,000 for the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation by the end of Game Day, and we still have donations rolling in!
Not only that, but you made our 10 Year Anniversary Celebration even more special, as we hit an incredible milestone part way through the night. We are very pleased to share that your efforts over the last ten years now total over $2 million.
$2 million for sick kids and their families to help make the scariest moments of their lives a little more bearable.
$2 million to keep kids smiling while fighting injury and disease.
$2 million to literally save lives.
Game Day was an absolutely massive success, and it couldn’t have happened without all of you. We laughed, we cried, we lit a kitchen on fire, and the whole time we were constantly in awe of the amazing work of our community of gamers. We meant what we said at the start of opening ceremonies: We all know that not all heroes wear capes, but who knew so many of them wear headphones.
From the bottoms of all our hearts, thank you. Truly.
