SGDQ this year with $2.9 million, which is close to the record for a single event - $3.16 million just before the pandemic. By any chance, perhaps the next marathon could set a new record for donations.
Summer Games Done Fast, the two-year Video Speed Charity Marathon ended last weekend with great transport. The event, which began on July 4 and ended a week later on July 11, raised a total of $2,902,055 for Doctors Without Borders, a medical humanitarian organization that helps people with help around the world.
Games Done Quick hosts its own fast paced marathons - cool, fast-paced summer games - in year one and midsummer respectively. The Covid-19 pandemic forced the coordinators to restructure events into virtual gatherings through the power of the internet.
SGDQ 2021 was the first major event to be held online and is expected to drop dramatically from $3.03 million to $2.35 million last year. Support increased slightly with AGDQ 2021, raising $2.78 million for the Cancer Prevention Foundation.
In the case of highlights, SGDQ was high. I'm fond of classic Nintendo games, so Super Mario Bros. 3 (co-op), Super Metroid (match three) and Super Mario 64 (blindfold) are on the main watch list.
