Awesome Games Done Quick 2019 Raises $2.4 Million for Charity

Annual video game speedrunning event Awesome Games Done Quick 2019 raised almost $2.4 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

The week-long marathon ended in the early morning today, Jan. 13, with an announced total of $2,394,668 in donations made during the stream. The organization has kept the donation window open for a limited time after the event ended, and is currently hovering around $2.397 million at the time of this writing.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2019’s donation total is now the highest amount in the organization’s history, beating last year’s event with a total of $2,295,190. Like previous AGDQs, all proceeds will be going to the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

The event held 133 speedruns of video games with highlights including Super Mario Odyssey, Jak 3, Celeste, Cuphead, Splatoon 2, and a nine-hour run of Final Fantasy IX that took multiple people to complete due to its length. The full broadcast of the marathon can be found in separate videos on the Games Done Quick Twitch page, while individual runs of each game can be watched from the organization’s YouTube page.
