We're so glad you're here!
If you joined us last year, you know the drill.
We're campaigning for Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas, located here by us in Austin, TX. Specifically, we are fundraising for a Magnetoencephalography, or MEG, machine (it's okay if you can't pronounce it) that cost the hospital around 4.1 million dollars.
Simply put: this non-invasive brain mapping machine can, within 5mm (because we have to breathe and ruin everything), identify the specific area of the brain that is affected by tumors, causes epilepsy or other neurological conditions in children that make them sick.
This machine is the bee's-knees because of how insanely important the information gathered from it is for neurosurgeons when they are performing surgery - especially on children and their developing brains.
Together, we raised almost half a million dollars for Dell Children's and their MEG machine, as well as many other Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. This year - we're going for the gold! Or silver, or bronze - it's really not a competition... UNLESS YOU WANT THE GOLD!*
We'll be on the Rooster Teeth Podcast set, streaming from **8am CST October 25th to 8am CST on October 26th, 2015.
There will be FUNraising goals with prizes, quizes with prizes, Jack's beard as a prize (maybe...), and much more. There will be sweat, sweets and maybe even a Return of the Mac *wink*.
