Speed Running For Charity

AGDQ has to be one of the worse acronyms. But Awesome Games Done Quick deserves nothing but praise after their latest charity run. After 160 hours with some of the best speed runners in the world, they raised $1.58 million dollars for the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

Wow.

Starting up 5 years ago, the growth of the event has been exponential, as seen in the graph they developed based off their Twitch numbers. It was a lot of gaming for January with fantastic results. Some of the silly content included blindfolding a gamer as he successfully completed Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Or how about Awful Games Done Quick such as Super Pitfall and The Town With No Name.

AGDQ is holding a summer event this year, so keep an eye out for details if you are a speed runner, or you are a fan of watching the speeding. Videos of the 2014 marathon are currently being uploaded to YouTube.
