Awesome Games Done Quick 2020 raises $3.1 million for Prevent Cancer Foundation

In yet another productive year for charity, Awesome Games Done Quick 2020 (AGDQ) has raised over $3 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation throughout a week of speedrunning and all-around goodness.

Speedrunning is a playthrough of a game in which the player attempts to finish a game as fast as possible.

The figure is almost 100k over the week-long event's previous record, with all funds going to the Prevent Cancer Foundation. SGDQ 2019 was the first GDQ event ever to raise $3 million, coming in about $100,000 under this year's AGDQ total.

Of course, this isn't the end of Games Done Quick.

It wasn't until the final 12 hours of the event that things really picked up, with everyone trying to reach the last special incentives to extend the event with a few more runs. Or check out Games Done Quicks official YouTube channel, where videos are still being cut and uploaded. Maybe you want something more modern? 3, Dark Souls, and The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening for the Nintendo Switch. Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 will follow that on January 3rd through January 10th.

There are also various raffles, with prizes ranging from a PlayStation 4 bundle pack to a custom-made 1:1 scale model of an unlit bonfire from Dark Souls.

If you happen to be unfamiliar with Games Done Quick, it's a charitable organization with a simple premise: speedrunners play through a variety of video games as quickly as they can in an effort to entertain people and, ultimately, secure donations for a charitable cause. SGDQ is scheduled to run from June 21 to 28.

That event benefits Doctors Without Borders.
