Extra Life is a program of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals that gives organizations and gamers the opportunity stream their games to raise money for the network. Over 87 million dollars have been raised for the network since Extra Life’s inception in 2008.
The nearest hospital to CUAA in the network is Beaumont Children’s Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. The hospital receives 100% of over $2,000 raised by CUAA Esports.
“We were excited to take part in Extra Life’s Game Day for the second year in a row. In 2020, we were the highest donating collegiate program for Beaumont Children’s Hospital in Royal Oak, so we appreciate the opportunity to build on that, helping local kids!” said Head Coach of CUAA Esports Dominic Scala.

Eleven of CUAA’s Esports athletes worked together to collectively stream for 24-hours straight on Game Day. The teammates played from midnight to midnight. Over that 24-hour period, the team raised just over $1900 for Beaumont Children’s Hospital.
The total has now surpassed $2,190, with more team members slated to stream over the next few weeks. If you’d like to donate, you can do so at CUAA Esports Extra Life team page until the end of 2021.
