Exciting news, Gamers Outreach community! Our founder Zach Wigal has been named a 2019 CNN Hero!
CNN Heroes celebrates “everyday people changing the world,” each of whom shows how one person can truly make a difference.
Wigal, who founded Gamers Outreach in 2007, is representing our cause as part of this year’s list of nonprofit change agents.
As a team, we’re proud to share this honor with our volunteers and donors who make a difference for kids in hospitals every day! We hope this recognition is of benefit to the families we work to support in healthcare facilities nationwide.

As of this blog post, our annual Gamers for Giving fundraiser in is two weeks (great timing)! We hope you’ll join us at the EMU Convocation Center on March 23rd & 24th to celebrate this victory, and help make an even bigger difference for hospitalized children!
