WISCONSIN — Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson surprised Children's Wisconsin with new custom XBOX consoles.

Children's Wisconsin is one of 20 children's hospitals nationwide to receive the new gaming systems before they're even offered to the public.

The custom Xbox Series X Consoles come with specialized Gamers Outreach Karts, also known as GO Karts, which allow for kids who can't leave their hospital rooms to still play.

"The GO Karts were built specifically for hospitals to empower and bring joy to families through play, giving kids access to interactive entertainment and the chance to socialize via video games," said XBOX in a press release.

Each console has Johnson’s iconic Brahma Bull logo which represents strength, resilience, heart, and power. In addition to the logo, the systems also have Johnson's signature engraved on them with a message from the celebrity.

The systems say "Keep smiling and have fun. Love, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson," XBOX said in a press release Monday.

Johnson's donation is a part of a partnership between him, Xbox, and Gamers Outreach.
