Playing Games to Help Heal Kids
Get ready to play some games! From Saturday, November 2, through Sunday, November 3, students and friends at County College of Morris (CCM) will be participating in the 24-hour Extra Life charity event “Play Games, Heal Kids.” Participants will be playing video games and board games, while raising funds to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in Mountainside.
The charity gaming event will take place in CCM’s Davidson Rooms located in the Student Community Center. The event is geared for CCM students and their friends who are 18-years-of-age and older. Co-sponsored by the Student Electronic Gaming Organization (SEGO), TCG Trading Card Gaming (TCG) and Game Developers of CCM, games will range from card games, to super Nintendo, to new consoles.
“Extra Life is a global event that benefits the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and I thought it would be a great opportunity to do something positive for the local community. Gaming students use critical thinking skills and it is great that they are coming together with their passions to help others,” says Eric Guadara, CCM instructor of information technologies.
This is the second year in a row that CCM students will be participating in the charity event.

CCM is located at 214 Center Grove Road, Randolph.
