AGDQ 2022 Raises $3.4 Million For Charity. Today, speedrunning charity event Awesome Games Done Quick 2022 Online.
Another Year. Another Record
This year AQDQ raised more than $3.4 million for Prevent Cancer Foundation, the largest donation total raised in a single Games Done Quick event. Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ) 2022 Online concluded its week-long 24-hour speedrunning marathon, raising a total of more than $3.4 million for Prevent Cancer Foundation. The largest donation total was raised in a single GDQ event. AGDQ 2022 Online also reached the first $1 million in donations in the shortest amount of time in GDQ history.
AGDQ 2022 Online was broadcast on Twitch from January 9-16. As Games Done Quick’s first event of 2022, it continues the organization’s pledge to safely continue fundraising during the COVID-19 pandemic with online-only events. All the while, AGDQ 2022 maintained the same kind of excitement and community spirit that viewers have come to expect from the speedrunning event.
