On March 23, gamers from across the country gathered in Orlando, FL, to compete in a gaming tournament to unlock funds for their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. We are happy to report that after three days of various table top and video competitions we had three gamers make it to the top 16 and bring back $14,000 for KU Medical Center Pediatrics.
