Rooster Teeth was honored with the naming of a mental health healing garden at the children’s hospital it has pledged to raise $3M. Rooster Teeth raised $1.2 million for Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas with Extra Life in 2017. Through the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals digital fundraising platform, fans donated more than $770,000 which Rooster Teeth matched in addition to donated funds from merchandise sales.
To recognize this pledge to raise $3 million, Dell Children’s is naming its new healing garden in its mental health wing in honor of the Austin based company. This is the first naming opportunity for a CMN Hospitals program at the children’s hospital. 1 in 5 children ages 13-18 have or will have a serious mental illness which includes mood disorders, anxiety disorders and developmental disorders like autism spectrum disorder. The garden will be a part of a unit at Dell Children’s that includes 24 beds as well as an intensive outpatient program.
To all of the fans, friends and family that have supported Rooster Teeth in their Extra Life endeavors over the years, thank you! You are making a difference to sick and injured kids at Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
