We broke all our previous records for the event with 51 participants playing for a combined 236 hours and raising $1,705 for the OSHU Doernbecher kids!

Our gamers not only played computer games this year (thanks to the hardworking CIS department), but also played a wide variety of great board and card games! Their energy and desire to give to others was infectious!Extra Life 2017 PlayersOur team included students from CAS, CIS, CS, and ESOL classes, ASPCC, and local high schools along with PCC family members and friends.  What a great collaboration of students, staff, and faculty coming together across the college!
