Why Video Games?
On September 17th, 2016, Alex's Arcade held it's 1st ever golf golf outing, sponsored by The Delphi Foundation, Vesco Oil, Deneweth Dugan & Parfitt, Vibe Credit Union, The DeMorest Group LLC, and Ahee Flooring.
What a stressful, fun, wild,and crazy day.
Lots of work in a short amount of time ..not the kind of work that we mind doing either...It's all for the greater good for kids to cope with cancer.
Thank you to all 40 golfers that joined us for a day of golfing and dinner, our volunteers for donating your valuable time, and to our sponsors for believing in our cause, and to everyone that helped make Alex's Arcade Tees Off on Childhood Cancer a successful event!
We can't wait to do it again in September 2017!

Welcome To Alex's Arcade
Together we can all help kids cope with cancer
Alex's Arcade is here to help kids cope with cancer, whether it's donating gaming systems to Children's Hospital, fundraising for our cause, advocating for childhood cancer awareness, or fulfill a dream for a family fighting cancer.
The feeling of helping others, making a difference in the lives of children, or being the reason that child or family can cope with cancer a little easier...Is like no other.
Alex's Arcade is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides video games as a coping mechanism to children diagnosed with cancer and advocates for childhood cancer awareness.
A NEW WAY TO COPE
Inspired by childhood cancer survivor, Alex Craven and his love of video games, Alex's Arcade provides video games to children with cancer to be used as an escape and coping mechanism.
This beautiful girl is Alexis, she was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma in July of 2016.
We started following her story shortly after her diagnosis, we've learned she is one courageous fighter that fights her battle with a smile on her face, even on the toughest days.
As you can see that smile...that smile is inspiration to her friends and family and all of us that see it.
On Wednesday December 14th Alex's Arcade with Ian & Kelly Mullins (and family) representing our organization in Tennessee, visited with Alexis and her family, gave a few gifts of video games, new friendships, and to let them know that we are all in on Alexis's fight together.
Not only can video games provide an escape from reality for children diagnosed with cancer, they also reduce the stress of being in the hospital.
