Pony Zook on His Support of Extra Life

Anyone that has spent a fair amount of time in the ZED RUN community is undoubtedly familiar with ZED community leader @PonyZook. His tireless efforts to entertain and engage fellow ZED Headz and his dedication to supporting one particular charity – @ExtraLife4Kids

Extra Life is a fundraising program run by the Children’s Miracle Hospital Network. The program specializes in raising funds via streams and video games – a cause Zook says is near and dear to his heart for very personal reasons. 

“In 2018, I was dealing with an alcohol problem which led to a severe automobile accident that should have taken my life. For the next few months, I was pretty low and decided to make some changes,” Zook says. 

“I started to volunteer at my local children's hospital (Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital) and it changed my perspective on life. Helping kids escape whatever they were going through, gave me a new purpose.”

Zook explains that the pandemic meant hospitals were no longer accepting volunteers, so he had to get creative, which is when he came by Extra Life.  

Incredibly Zook has raised nearly $100,000 USD for Extra Life through streams, ZED RUN community racing events, and the generosity of fellow ZED community members. 

Zook believes Extra Life has seen such incredible support from the entire ZED community because “Helping sick kids is the least polarising topic there is, and so many members of the community say they have been helped by ExtraLife in the past.” Zook says.  

If you’d like to know more about Extra Life or get involved, follow Pony Zook on Twitter to catch his next fundraising activation. Zook also recommends volunteering yourself and donating toys or money directly to your local children’s hospitals.
