Hello Columbus,

I have been working with Extra Life and OSU to bring Extra Life to Columbus. If you are unfamiliar, Extra Life is a 24-hour gaming marathon that benefits Nationwide Children's Hospital. Extra Life raised over $2.3 million last year, and that was throughout the country.

We hope to create a citywide push to help save the kids who deserve it the most. I wrote an article about what we are trying to accomplish and it was featured on the front page of IGN.com , one of the biggest gaming, media, and technology websites in the world.

We are hosting an event at Ohio State's union with prizes, giveaways, tournaments, and much more! We are even raffling off a PS4!!! However, you can also participate at your home, at a friends home, or anywhere else you see fit!!

Please feel free to e-mail me at adam@thegamersadvocate.com if you would like to be involved and be a part of the next big thing in the world of games and helping those in need!
