The first installment of Disney’s Friends for Change Games aired this weekend and millions of kids and teens tuned in to watch Disney Channel celebs gear up for some fun — and unorthodox — Olympic-based games.

Disney’s huge Friends for Change Games runs this summer, and challenges teams of Disney stars to compete to win money for the charity of their choice. Here’s a team-by-team breakdown:

The Green team (which includes David Henrie from Wizards of Waverly Place) is competing on behalf of Flora and Fauna International, the Red team (which includes WizardsJake T. Austin) is playing for the World Wildlife Fund, the Blue team (featuring Debby Ryan from Jessie) is playing for the Ocean Conservancy, and the Yellow team (headed up by captain Bridgit Mendler of Good Luck Charlie) is playing for UNICEF.

To ensure that everyone  is a winner, Disney will donate $ 125,000 to each team’s charity, but the ultimate champion team will win an additional $100,000! These games, hosted by Tiffany Thornton from So Random! and Jason Earles from Kickin’ It, may get competitive, but with a common goal in sight, whichever teams wins, it’s sure to be a victory for everyone.

So which team has what it takes to take this challenge by storm? Tune in to Disney Channel Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and root for your favorite team!
