The annual video game speed running event is back to raise more money for charity.


Games Done Quick is a staple when it comes to fundraising through gaming. Several of the best speed runners around the world gather a couple times a year to break records and show off new strategies all in the name of raising money for charity. Awesome Games Done Quick is set to make its return this week with a slate of exciting games and players.

Awesome Games Done Quick Online will kick off this weekend on January 9. Once again, Games Done Quick has opted for an entirely online format to keep everybody as safe as possible.

This year, Awesome Games Done Quick Online will be supporting the Prevent Cancer Foundation. Throughout the week-long livestream event, viewers can donate money to the cause through the Games Done Quick website.
