Garth Expands Life Zone at Texas Children’s Hospital

Garth Brooks was on hand to celebrate the grand opening of the newly-renovated and expanded Child Life Zone at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston June 26. Funded through his Teammates for Kids foundation, the Zone provides a fun, safe environment for patients and their families. The newly-renovated space includes video gaming with a new Microsoft Media Wall and Surface Pro tablets, pool, air hockey, and race car driving on the Zone’s arcade games, an expanded kitchen, and an expanded production studio which offers patients the opportunity to explore and create music and allows kids to go “on air” each week as Radio Lollipop broadcasts their radio program throughout the hospital.
