Summer Games Done Quick 2022 -- or simply SGDQ 2022 as it is commonly called -- concluded this past weekend after a week of video game speedruns running 24 hours from June 26th through July 3rd. As usual for Games Done Quick events, this was done in support of raising money for charity, and Summer Games Done Quick 2022 ended up raising a total of $3.01 million for Doctors Without Borders.
More specifically, Summer Games Done Quick 2022 raised a total of $3,016,200 for Doctors Without Borders during last week's event. In total, this brings the grand sum that Games Done Quick has raised over the years since 2010 to over $40 million. In addition to the significant money donated to charity, Summer Games Done Quick 2022 also marked the first time that a Games Done Quick event has been held in person since Awesome Games Dock Quick 2022 in Orlando.
