We're wrapping up another excellent ExtraLife event with the ARK community. On November 5th, we went live on Twitch from our Seattle Office for 24 hours to support ExtraLife, a program of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. With your help, we were able to raise over $130K in support of kids' health! We were able to shatter our individual and team donation goals, setting up this year's event to be another unforgettable one! Throughout the Game Day event, we maintained the #2 team in total donations and in the top 5 for individual donations!

The ARK community has helped us raise well over 500K for children in need with the completion of our 8th ExtraLife event! These achievements wouldn't be possible without the support of the ARK community and sponsors! We are grateful for our generous, supportive players, partners & sponsors, & the opportunity to help facilitate this endeavor.
