Games Done Quick raised over $2.7 million for Prevent Cancer Foundation

Gaming charity Games Done Quick (GDQ) has raised over $2.7 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. Over the years, Games Done Quick has marathoned speedruns for various charities. A speedrun is a game playthrough with the goal of finishing a game or reaching a certain checkpoint in the game as quickly as possible. The marathon for the Prevent Cancer Foundation ended with over $2.7 million in donations from more than 25,000 donors. GDQ was in the spotlight in 2020 when another charity partner — Médecins Sans Frontières (or Doctors Without Borders) — revealed some fantastic news:. In the past six years, GDQ has raised over $10.5 million for the global health charity. In fact, MSF spokesperson Greta Doucette said that GDQ raised over $3 million for MSF in 2019 alone, . which was enough to cover all of MSF’s U.S.-based COVID-19 relief efforts in 2020
