Want to Play in the PCC Computer Gaming Marathon?

extra life 2017 games

When & Where: Sat. Nov. 4th, 8am – 8pm TCB Building (Sylvania Campus)

Extra Life is an international gaming day that takes place each year in the fall to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network. Last year, PCC gamers raised over $1,200 for OSHU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. PCC students will be joining in this year on Saturday, Nov. 4 by playing computer games from 8 am – 8 pm on the Sylvania campus in the TCB Building on the 2 nd Floor. Participants raise money for OSHU Doernbecher’s through pledges. Anyone can sponsor a gamer with a set amount.

Play computer games with STEAM, or try some “old-fashioned” computer classics like Pong & Centipede programmed by PCC CS students. We’ll also have a variety of board games available to play low-tech!

How can you help? If you’re a gamer, come play for part or all of the day! Have some children who would love to play? We’ll have a special place for them as well.

Play for the whole day or part of the day…
