ZeroDay Technology Solutions and INTERalliance Partner to Support Community through Extra Life Day of Gaming
CINCINNATI, Oct. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ZeroDay Technology Solutions and The INTERalliance of Greater Cincinnati have partnered to support the worldwide Extra Life Game Day initiative by creating a virtual, Cincinnati-wide gaming event for those interested in giving back to their community. By pledging to play video games for a full 24 hours, attendees raise money to support children supported by the Children’s Miracle Network.
Started in 2008, Extra Life Game Day began as a mission to unite gamers in support of their region’s Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Since the event’s inception, participants have raised over $70 million dollars for children across the country. Gamers who join ZeroDay’s Cincinnati team for the 2020 event will be raising money for the Children’s Hospitals COVID-19 Impact Fund alongside other worldwide participants.
The event begins globally on November 7th. However, INTERalliance and ZeroDay have created a special structure for Cincinnati attendees. The fully-virtual event will start at 8:00am with a kick-off introduction from INTERalliance and ZeroDay, and from then on will alternate between tournament streams, raffles, and community-wide commentary for 24 hours. Tournament games include Smash, Valorant, League of Legends, and Overwatch, with finals categories in each. Students will also have the opportunity to showcase their game of choice by registering to stream on the team Twitch.
Although attendees do not have to donate to participate in the event, they are encouraged to hve friends and family support the mission if possible. Every $25 donation will enter them into a raffle for great prizes. In addition, INTERalliance is incorporating a competition across schools. Whichever INTERalliance Chapter raises the most money will receive $500 for Chapter-related use.
