Summer Games Done Quick ends with $3.01 Million raised for Doctors Without Borders
SGDQ 2022 has ended its week-long, 24-hour, non-stop speed-running marathon, having raised a grand total of $3,016,200 for Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières.
The event saw over 120 speed-runs, and showcased their incredible technical skill, knowledge, and exactly how to exploit the weird and wonderful mechanics of each game with clever tricks, while other runs featured multiple runners playing to the crowd and simply being able to come together and embrace the joys of speed-running and the community that surrounds it.
Being the first in-person GDQ event since 2020 due to the pandemic, the event took place at the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel in Bloomington, Minneapolis, and was broadcast in full over on their Twitch channel.
If you happened to have missed any of the runs that were exhibited, not to worry whatsoever, every single run from SGDQ 2022 can be found archived over on their YouTube channel,
The Games Done Quick community have now raised more than $40,000,000 over the years for charities all around the world, including Doctors Without Borders, Prevent Cancer Foundation, the Malala Fund, Organisation for Autism Research, and CARE.
The next Games Done Quick event will be Flame Fatales, an all-women speed-running showcase taking place online on their Twitch channel – https://www.twitch.tv/gamesdonequick – From August 21 through to August 27.
