If you’ve always wanted to Be a Hero for someone, now is your chance. Geeks With Wives is proud to be participating this year in Extra Life, a gaming marathon to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network.

On Saturday, November 9, three members of the Geeks With Wives website & podcast will spend 25 hours straight playing video games. I know this sounds like a typical weekend for us, but in this gaming marathon there’s more at stake than just experience points. And you can participate in two ways! The easiest is to sponsor one of the Geeks:

But sometimes you’re not in a position to donate financially and that’s okay. If you’d like to join the gaming marathon and rally friends for donations, send a tweet to @HardwickFamily and James will be happy to help you help us.

  1. Hey, everybody. James here. As many of us do, I have a child. When she was 9 months old she had a respiratory infection. She was in our local Children’s Hospital for a week. Luckily I had insurance, but insurance doesn’t cover everything. The hospital staff went above and beyond to not only take care of my daughter’s illness, but to make sure she was as comfortable and happy as she could be. As a father, this was so important. As an individual familiar with that industry I know they didn’t have to do that. Children’s Hospital cares about their patients. They provide this same level of care whether or not the parents have insurance or if they can afford the care. The least I (we) can do is help with donations to cover services and supplies they do not get paid for. Thank you for taking the time to read this page and this long comment, but please take that next step and donate a little (or a lot if you can). I cannot thank you enough.


  2. Would love to play with you guys, but I’ll be on PTO. Will definitely send a few $$s though.

    • Thanks, Ray. Any games we can play on your behalf?

      • I’d say Civ 5, but then that’s the only game you’d be playing for all 25 hours.
