Dell Children’s Needs Gaming Heroes Like YOU! Join Extra Life and help Change Kids’ Health

Children’s hospitals like Dell Children’s Medical Center are on the frontlines when it comes to protecting the health of future generations. But we can’t do it alone. That’s where you come in. As a gaming hero For The Kids treated at Dell Children’s, you’re helping change kids’ health and change the future.

We believe when we positively change the health of even one child, we create a ripple effect felt by our communities for years to come. When we ensure our children can lead healthy, fulfilling lives, we foster the scientists, inventors, gamers, and leaders of tomorrow.

You can play games to heal kids by registering and fundraising at Every dollar raised by you will help kids at our hospital.

Kids like Owen.


Owen Coulter’s journey with Dell Children’s began two weeks before Christmas 2018. Owen’s condition escalated very quickly, and he went into cardiac arrest, and he received 90 minutes of CPR. Doctors decided to put him on a heart and lung bypass machine called ECMO, which ultimately saved his life in the emergency room that day. Owen fought through a 56-day stay with the help of the Music Therapy program. Owen got to go home with his family on February 7, 2019!
