Extra Life — Play games to change kids' health and change the future
GOATcon is working with Extra Life for the third year in a row. Please join us to help Extra Life meet their Game Day goal.
- In 2019, GOATcon (then Theriacon) first teamed up with Extra Life and set a goal to raise $1,000. We quickly passed the goal, and increased it to ultimately raise $3,185 – FAR beyond our expectations!
- In 2020 in the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we thought it would be difficult to match 2019, but set a goal of $3,000. Thanks to the amazing generosity of our players, GMs and fans, we raised an amazing $6,445.25, placing us in the top 250 fund raisers for Extra Life for 2020.
- This year, we have a chance to do even more. With the help of our GOATcon 2021 Sponsors and our amazing players and fans, we hope to again smash our goal of $6,000 and help as many kids as possible.
