The introduction from the originator, Lou.
Hello, my name is Lou “herobyclicking” Adducci.
In 2014 I created a fun challenge for myself. I wanted to play the hundreds of games I had collected over the years. I wanted to play those games for Extra Life.
I made the rules simple. Play one game a day for 100 days up to the official national day of play for Extra Life, and then participate in the 24 hour marathon. I had no idea really how I would do this. But I knew I wanted to make a gesture to the kids and their families in Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals who spend hours, days, weeks and years receiving treatment and care.
#100DaysofGaming attempts to honor those hardships and sacrifices.
In 2015 Todd “Zyaldar” Michaels joined me in this challenge and rallied almost two dozen other participants to join us. Zyaldar has become an enormous advocate for this annual challenge and for Extra Life, for that I am grateful and inspired.
In 2016 we had over 30 participants, collectively raising over $20,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
In 2017, we continued to grow even more and now are looking forward to 2018! We just started 4 days ago on July 26th.
So join us, won’t you?
