Weeklong Awesome Games Done Quick charity campaign closes with over a million dollars raised for Prevent Cancer Foundation.

A weeklong charity marathon featuring video game speedruns has concluded with $1 million raised for the Prevent Cancer Foundation, the organization has announced on its official site.


The Awesome Games Done Quick campaign's $1 million in donations was more than double its original goal of $500,000. In total, the effort raised $1,014,209.32 from 27,403 people. The average donation was higher than you might think, at $37.01. One person donated $10,000.


A total of 155 speedruns were completed during the weeklong event, which ran January 5-11, including Halo 2, Resident Evil 4, and Super Mario Bros., among others.
