    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 seven-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 12 million dollars for charity. We also average over 1600 people in attendance at our events, including staff, volunteers, runners, and attendees just looking to have fun and support the event!
