The CHOC Champions League kicks off this week and starts two weekends of competition to support CHOC (Children’s Hospital of Orange County). The CHOC Champions League is a series of esports tournaments that will bring people together and also raise funds for CHOC following the excitement and success of this year’s virtual CHOC Walk!
This series of events were created by between Rally Cry and CHOC Foundation and will consist of four online competitions over the course of two weekends:
- Saturday, June 12 (Call of Duty: Warzone Duos, sign-up at https://ChampionsLeagueWarZone)
- Sunday, June 13 (Tetris 1v1 Bracket, sign-up at https://ChampionsLeagueTetris)
- Saturday, June 19 (Rocket League 2v2 Bracket, sign-up at https://ChampionsLeagueRocketLeague)
- Sunday, June 20 (Chess 1v1, sign-up at https://ChampionsLeagueChess).
During the competitions, funds will be raised to support CHOC patients and their families. For families that compete together on the Champions League Family Days (sponsored by Hyundai), registration fees will be covered by Hyundai. This will be applicable to family teams that sign up to play either #Tetris on June 13th or #RocketLeague on June 19.
“Our Champions League competition is a fun, social, and virtual way to help us raise vital funds regardless of anyone’s online gaming skill level,” says Zachariah Abrams, Assistant Vice President of Community Engagement, CHOC Children’s Foundation. “It’s part of our new Gamers for CHOC initiative that rallies gamers, companies, employees, and communities from local games-related studios, businesses, organizations, and groups to support Virtual CHOC Walk 2021 by raising financial support for health care programs, education, and research for southern California’s kids.”
CHOC shared some details about the need for fundraising, what CHOC is, and also some of the sponsors connected with the CHOC Champions League. Read about them below:
