Summer Games Done Quick, a speed-running event hosted for charity by Games Done Quick, starts this weekend on July 4. It will run through July 11, and 100% of the proceeds from the event will go to Doctors Without Borders. Last year’s event raised over $2.3 million for charity, and SGDQ 2021 looks to build on that success.
Each year, Games Done Quick (GDQ) hosts two events like this, one in the winter and one in the summer. These events invite some of the best speed-runners in their respective categories to show their skill in front of a massive audience all while raising money for the various charities Games Done Quick has supported throughout the years. To date, GDQ has raised over $31 million in total for charity.
Though every SGDQ 2021 run will undoubtedly be jaw-droppingly impressive, highlights of the event will include a run of Ghosts ‘N Goblins Resurrection by TheMexicanRunner, a perfect-score GeoGuessr playthrough by havrd, a four-way Ristar race between chronoon, Lizstar, ShimeGabriel, and Haram_Scaram, a blindfolded run of Super Mario 64 by Bubzia, and a Super Metroid race between Oatsngoats, Behemoth87, and ShinyZeni.
