Extra-Life Gaming Marathon
Come by and help raise money to support Texas Children’s Hospital by playing video and board games for 24 hours straight!  We will be playing from 5 am Saturday, November 7th through 5 am Sunday, November 8th in the ASME Lounge.  We will have plenty of TVs, video game systems, PCs, and table top games to go around.  Food will be provided for those who register to help raise money.  If you wish to register, go to our Team Page and select join.  We are “ASME at UH” and we need your help to reach our $1,000 goal!  Last year, we were close with just over $700 raised.  With some more help we can definitely beat it this year!  Please contact ASME for details or if you have any questions.

You do NOT need to register to attend!  You only need to register if you want to help raise money to meet our goal and if you want food while we’re playing.  If you don’t want to participate but want to donate, just visit the Team Page and select donate!
