“That concludes what has been a phenomenal # AGDQ2021!”
The speedrunners contributing to Awesome Games Done Quick have raised more than $ 2.75 million (£ 2.3 million) for the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

“This concludes what has been a phenomenal # AGDQ2021! Your support this entire week has been nothing short of spectacular, and we can’t thank you enough!” said another tweet. “# SGDQ2021 is waiting for us, and details will come. We’ll have regular content on our Twitch by then, so stick around!”
Money continues to pour in, however, with the total sitting just north of $ 2.76 million at the time of writing. Donations are always welcome through the official donation page and can even earn you prizes.
Games Done Quick is a charitable fundraising organization that has raised money for charity through speedrunning for the past ten years. The events are broadcast live online, without interruption, and all donations go directly to the charity.
The next GDQ event is scheduled for later this year, although final dates have yet to be confirmed. To find out more, visit the official website.
