Go Dawg Gaming is a group of UWT students raising money for a charity organization called Extra Life. Extra Life unites thousands of players around the world to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) which is a non-profit organization that raises funds for children's hospitals, medical research and community awareness of children's health issues.
Extra Life is a fundraising event, the proceeds of which go to branches of the CMN Hospitals. 100% of all donations go directly to the hospitals. Extra Life was formed in 2008 to honor Victoria Enmon, who was suffering from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. It was aided by the "Sarcastic Gamer" community, who sent gifts and video games to her. It has since expanded to help other children suffering from Cancer.
