This sweepstakes is now closed. Congratulations to Stacey S. of Florida for winning the Xbox 360 Console + Kinect!
Who says video games aren’t good for you? The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, the largest children’s hospital charity, will be hosting its annual 24-hour video game fundraising marathon, called Extra Life, on Saturday, October 15. The marathon is in honor of the late Victoria (Tori) Enmon, a 15-year-old girl who played video games during her battle with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
In honor of this fundraising event that carries on Tori’s legacy, the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has offered to give away one Xbox 360 4GB Console with Kinect to a lucky Parents.com reader. The prize package is valued at $299.99 and includes: built-in wi-fi, a black wireless controller, a standard definition composite A/V cable, a Kinect Sensor, the Kinect Adventures game, and a free one-month Xbox LIVE Gold Membership.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to support 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada for research, training, equipment, and other healthcare issues related to children. Participants can get involved in the marathon (or make donations) by registering on Extra-Life.org. Even if your family doesn’t play video games, mobile games and board games are also encouraged.
Xbox 360 also hosted a Gaming and Giving for Good (G3) Xbox LIVE charity event earlier this month on Saturday, October 1, to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. 9,600 individuals participated, including celebrities such as actress Eva Longoria (“Desperate Housewives”) and professional sports players such as Landry Fields (New York Knicks), Andrew Bynum (LA Lakers), and Shawn Marrion (Dallas Mavericks).
