    Celebrating 10 years of GDQ with a new record

    Thanks to all of the amazing support from viewers, donors, runners, volunteers, sponsors, staff and more, Games Done Quick has kicked off its 10 year anniversary with a new donation record of over $3.1 million! All of the donations go directly to the Prevent Cancer Foundation, in pursuit of cancer prevention and early detection!

    Speaking of records, GDQ has now broken the $25 million dollar mark for total donations raised throughout its history. Thank you again for your continued support of our events!

    What is Games Done Quick?

    Games Done Quick is a series of charity video game marathons. These events feature high-level gameplay by speedrunners raising money for charity. Games Done Quick has teamed up with several charities in its nine-year history, including Doctors Without Borders and the Prevent Cancer Foundation. We are currently the largest fundraising event globally for both charities!

    To date, Games Done Quick has raised over 22.3 million dollars for charity. We also average over 2000 people in attendance at our events, including staff, volunteers, runners, and attendees just looking to have fun and support the event!
