Another year and another successful Extra Life gaming marathon has concluded; and after tallying up all of the donations made thanks to the effort of over 24,000 gamers across North America, Extra Life has surpassed its goal and raised $1.1 million for children's hospitals.

CEO of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, John Lauck said, "This remarkable miracle of raising $1.1 million through the Extra Life marathon will truly make a difference in the lives of children in local communities."

Destructoid's Extra Life marathon went spectacularly well with the community raising $6909.16, surpassing all previous years totals. On top of giving away ridiculous amounts of prizes from some generous sponsors, we also got to share in some moments that will live in Destructoid history forever, especially since it's in GIF format. One thing is for sure, we couldn't have gotten to that amount without our fantastic community's help. You are amazing!
