Animethon 26 + Extra Life Edmonton

Let's do it for the kids!

It's time to level up our fundraising! 

We are excited to announce that for the first time ever, Animethon 26 will feature exciting activities in support of our official Charity of Choice: Extra Life Edmonton, benefitting the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation. We couldn't be more proud to team up to play games to heal kids.

Where does the money go?
100% of the proceeds from all fundraising activities at Animethon 26 goes directly to the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation through Extra Life Edmonton. The funding supports research and training, purchasing life-saving equipment, and paying for uncompensated care. Let's do it for the kids!
