Extra Life Supports Pride During A Weekend Of Play, June 22-23

Hi Extra Life community! My name is Allison Kurtz and this year, I’m a Champion Kid for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. I’m so grateful for the life-changing ways Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center has impacted my life, both in treating my polycystic kidney disease and through supporting my medical needs as a transgender young woman.

June is Pride month and I wanted to invite the Extra Life community into something really special this year to support the LGBTQIA+ community.

This month I am thrilled to invite you to join my Extra Life team, “Team Allison” as I take my personal passion for gaming to support other kids in the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as all kids who benefit from the life-saving services of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

The world-renowned Cincinnati Children’s Transgender Clinic has made an incredible difference in my life. Similar services are offered at so many CMN Hospitals in cities like SeattleDenverWashington DCBostonTorontoVancouverSt. Louis and many more! Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across North America are leading the way in supporting transgender medical treatment for kids like me.

Here are a few ways you can help celebrate Pride with me and Extra Life:

  • Join Team Allison and invite your friends
  • Stream during June 22-23 and raise money for your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital (get your Extra Life Pride themed broadcast overlays in our broadcasting toolkit!)
  •  Not able to participate in a stream that weekend? No worries! Please share our stream on and on your social channels

Thank you for celebrating Pride and helping kids like me — all across the spectrum — who are cared for at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
