Despite the remote nature, viewers can still expect to see speedrunners blazing through major games for charity on the Games Done Quick Twitch channel, which can be found right here. This year, the group is raising money for Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières. Certain donation amounts allow viewers to name characters in games that allow it, task the runners with competing certain tasks, and more. Over the last decade, Games Done Quick has raised more than $25.7 million for various charities.
It will be interesting to see how much Summer Games Done Quick 2020 manages to raise! Summer Games Done Quick 2019 managed to pull in more than $3 million, making it the first of the group's events to pull in that dollar amount. January's Awesome Games Done Quick 2020 event actually surpassed that amount, pulling in more than $3.1 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. All in all, the group has done some amazing work for charity over the years, and it seems they will only continue to do so!
Summer Games Done Quick will kick-off August 16th and will last through August 23rd.
