Another summer run has come in hot with a huge win for Doctors Without Borders. Summer Games Done Quick 2021 Online concluded yesterday Sunday, July 11th. According to Games Done Quick’s official website, the speedrunning marathon raised over $2.9 million in total for its charity organization with its most recent event.

Games Done Quick’s official website posted the following statement to thank viewers, runners, volunteers, and staff involved in the recent event.

 

“SGDQ2021 has concluded, with a total of over $2.9 million raised for Doctors Without Borders! This sets a new record for GDQ’s online events!

Thank you to all the staff, runners, volunteers, and donors who helped to make this event such a success. It wouldn’t be possible without the continued support from all of you and the entire speedrunning community.

If you missed a run, or want to watch some again, be sure to check out our YouTube channel, where we have uploaded all of the runs from the event!”

 

Games Done Quick will be making a comeback next month with the Flame Fatales charity event on Sunday, August 15th. While submissions to run a game for the event have closed, those interested in helping out can apply as volunteers. For the safety of its runners, volunteers, and staff involved, Flame Fatales will be online only for its entirety.
