 Outfox for Extra Life

Play Games, Heal Kids - Join Outfox for Extra Life

Since the Outfox team came together this year, we've been looking for ways to get involved and give back to the gaming community at large. Games are great, but the people who play them are what really make them fun. We are excited to announce the Outfox team signed up to participate in Extra Life 2017. Playing games to raise money for sick kids? It doesn't get better than that!

What is Extra Life?

The Extra Life 24-hour charity gaming marathon unites thousands of gamers around the world to play games in support of their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $30 million for sick and injured kids. This year, we will be playing to support Dell Children's Medical Center in Texas and all funds we raise will go directly to helping kids in our community.

Children's Miracle Network HospitalsĀ® raise funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals that provide 32 million treatments each year for kids across the U.S. and Canada. Donations stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care.

Dell Children's has also touched the lives of those close to us including our Billing Manager, Denise Taylor. She shared with us a bit about her experience, confirming why we are so glad to support this important organization.

"To me, the staff makes the hospital. Many hospitals have state of the art equipment, but without a great staff it doesn't matter. In my experience, the staff, medical and support, were excellent and efficient. They were also very friendly and supportive during my son's surgery."
