EQNX is excited to announce we're teaming with Gamers Outreach for the 2020 holiday season to bring the joy of video games to kids in hospitals. We're kicking off the partnership with the EQNX 5v5 Championships on Saturday, December 12. Make sure to save the date for this epic showdown between some of the best North American players in the TEKKEN scene while raising money for a good cause. Fans will also have a chance to win epic prizes from our event sponsors ASTRO Gaming, Qanba USA, Addice Inc., GT Omega Racing, and more.
Gamers Outreach, a 501(c)(3) charity organization, started Project GO Kart, an initiative that provides equipment, technology, and gaming software to help kids cope with treatment in hospitals. These mobile gaming kiosks (called GO Karts) are built specifically for the medical environment, outfitted with top-of-the-line monitor, gaming console, controllers, and video games. One GO Kart can servce thousands of kids in a single year.
"We are thankful for EQNX and the FGC for choosing our charity to be supported in this year's EQNX holiday tournament. With our GO Karts being requested now more than ever, it's truly heartwarming to join with communities and brands who want to share our cause with the world. We're looking forward to tuning in to the tournament!" - Samantha Robertell, Marketing Team, Gamers Outreach
As the grand finale of our team series, the EQNX Championships is our most anticipated event yet with some of the best talent in North America like Joey Fury, Cuddle_Core, Anakin, Shadow20z, and Rip onboard. Kaizured, Glaciating, and Suiken will also be making tournament appearances as our EQNX LCQ winners from last month. If you missed out, catch the LCQ Recap here.
"EQNX is so excited to partner with Gamers Outreach for the holiday season. Their mission to inspire and heal patients through video games resonates strongly with the team as we want video games to be a positive experience for everyone. Hospitals can often be a lonely and stressful place, and Gamers Outreach has come up with a creative solution to provide young patients with entertainment and a sense of relief. Gamers Outreach is truly making a difference in kids' lives all over the country and we are happy to join the cause!" – Emily Tran, EQNX CEO.
We'll be releasing more information about the #EQNXChampionships in the coming days, including more about our goals, event schedule, additional event sponsor information, along with what raffle prizes are up for grabs this year.
