Xbox is partnering with the Special Olympics USA for a new virtual event featuring the Xbox One racing game Forza Motorsport 7. The organizations are working together for a new tournament that will air on May 30.
More than 35 competitors from 11 states will take part in the competition, and you can watch the action live on Mixer, Xbox YouTube, or Twitch. The awards ceremony will take place inside of Minecraft.
"With athletic training and competitions currently postponed due to COVID-19, Special Olympics are looking for new ways to connect, compete, and just have fun," Microsoft said in a news release. "Enveloping this event will be stories of the athletes themselves--allowing a broad fanbase to know who they are, what they care about, how they are feeling-- and cheer them on as they discover new community and excitement in playing Forza Motorsport 7."
As part of this partnership, Xbox users can donate their Microsoft Rewards points online and through your console through the Microsoft Rewards app. For this special charity drive, Microsoft will match Rewards points donations until the end of June.
Microsoft has been a partner of the Special Olympics since 2014. In 2017, Xbox helped coordinate the first-ever gaming tournament at the Special Olympics USA Games in Seattle, Washington.
