Fairmont State Campus Ministry FUNdraiser
Fairmont State’s Newman Center held its 3rd annual 24 Hours of Gaming event to support the ExtraLife program. Extralife is a national program, partnered with Children’s Miracle Network, that provides funds for children’s hospitals through many gaming events. The event kicked off at noon on October 26th at the Newman Center where students spent 24 hours in a gaming marathon which included six different gaming tournaments. Throughout the 24 hours over 45 students came to the Newman Center to play games in support of helping those in need. The students had a goal of $2,000 for their time, which they exceeded early Saturday morning. 24 Hours of Gaming was once again a cool opportunity for fun and mission to meet, and a great time was had by all involved!
