“AGDQ is the start of GDQ events calendar. It also includes summer games Done Quick and Frame Fatales. Players from around the world show their skill by beating games quickly and taking minutes to complete traditional video games that could usually take more than three hours to complete. This is where the watcher receives an auction-based donation in a live stream that is raucous, where all proceeds of the show are directly handed to the charity partner. Games Done Quick is a series of charity video game marathons. These events feature a high-level game of speedrunners, who raise money for charity. Games Done Quick has teamed up with several charities in its 13-year history, including Doctors Without Borders and Prevent Cancer Foundation. Games Done Quick has raised over $46,3 million for charity.
“The Prevent Cancer Foundation celebrates 38 years ago as a single, nonprofit organization in the United States, focused on saving lives through prevention and early detection. Through research, education, outreach and advocacy, countless people have gotten a diagnosis of cancer or are they able to tell their cancer early enough to be treated properly. The foundation is climbing for a challenge of 40 percent lower than ever in the year 2035. To overcome this, we will invest $20 million in innovative technology to detect cancer early, advance multicancer screening, $10 million to expand cancer screening and vaccination access to medically underserved communities, and $10 million to educate the public about screening and vaccination options.”
