The Special Olympics Flame of Hope passed through Microsoft headquarters yesterday on its 20,000 mile journey to the Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Microsoft’s “official spokesdudes” Sam and Mattie welcomed Microsoft employees, their families, and members of the Special Olympics community to celebrate the flame’s arrival.

Microsoft last year announced a three-year, multimillion dollar partnership with the Special Olympics to modernize the nonprofit’s software and games management system, and elevate it to the cloud. Special Olympics has nearly 4.5 million athletes in 170 countries around the world.
