Join Us in a Video Game Marathon For Charity

Update: The World of Speed time slot is 11:00 a.m. (Pacific), October 24. is excited to  participate in the Extra Life gaming marathon, October 24 & 25 – an annual event where the video game industry comes together in a 24-hour gaming marathon to raise money for children’s hospitals. Last year, the event raised over $4 million.

This is our first time participating in Extra Life, so we have joined forces with the Raptr’s Team to support efforts to raise funds for the Children’s Miracle Network. And, for the first time, the charity will support the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital of each streamer’s choice. Together with other AAA developers, as part of the Raptr team will be streaming live on Raptr Twitch channel between October 24-25.

extra_life_raptr-550x366 will be participating with our World of Speed game. We will be giving away beta keys during the stream so this is a great opportunity to get early access to our upcoming game. The specific time slot for World of Speed will be announced closer to the date. (Update: The World of Speed time slot is 11:00 a.m. Pacific, October 24.) For the full list of games and developers that are participating, visit the Raptr Fundraising page.
