Gamers Outreach Founder Explains How ESports Can Help Others

Zach Wigal is a former pro gaming manager who now helps kids in hospitals through his organization, Gamers Outreach Foundation. The non-profit company’s main event, Gamers for Giving, will take place at Eastern Michigan University February 8-9 and will get a live international broadcast courtesy of headline sponsor Twitch.

The goal is to reach $20,000 to help support the construction of portable video game kiosks dubbed Gamers Outreach Karts ("GO Karts") for use in children’s hospitals. GO Karts contain a monitor, an Xbox console, and Astro Gaming headphones, and are crafted for use within medical environments. These are for children who have limited mobility or access to activities away from their bedside. (Culture, eSports, Gamers Outreach Foundation, League of Legends, Starcraft II, TwitchTV)
