Gamer commits to get tattoo if he raises $2K during Extra Life

Extra Life gamer Adam Fraley has decided if he reaches his fundraising goal to support Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital this year, that he will get a tattoo designed by 2015 Miracle Kid Kaitlyn Hentschel.

Fraley of Kingston has been involved with Extra Life for five years and participates because he wants “to make a difference and help kids in need.” He has set a goal to raise $2,000 for the children’s hospital through his gaming efforts.

Fraley believes Extra Life is a great way for people to get involved in the care of local children treated at Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital.

“These kids are going through hard times, and it is nice to be able to help out and give back,” he said.

Hentschel, who is now a student at Bloomsburg University, designed a sketch of the tattoo that includes a nod to the children’s hospital with the well-known sun logo placed on the buttons of the extra Life controller.

“I thought it would be neat to involve the kids in the deisign of the tattoo year and I wanted to have a good way to show my dedication,” Fraley said. “If I meet the goal and if people see the tattoo, it will help raise awareness to Extra Life and maybe bring in more participants.”

Adam has two “little dino nuggets” at home, his two young boys, who serve as his own personal inspiration for participating in Extra Life.
