AGDQ 2024: New donation record for the charity speedrun marathon!


From January 9 to 16, 2024, dozens and dozens of speedrunners showed off their skills to entice viewers around the world to donate. This year, all donations were intended for Prevent Cancer, a foundation to finance research and carry out prevention around these diseases.

Held at a distance again due to the pandemic, the Awesome Games Done Quick 2024 will remain, at least for a year, as a record edition. Indeed, in one week, the event raised $3,416,729, surpassing the 2024 edition and its 3.13 million dollars.

During the week, and especially thanks to the LeFrenchRestream channel, which rebroadcast and commented on the runs, we were treated to a run of Sekiro Shadows Die Twice blindfolded, to a game of Kena: Bridge of Spirits completed in 28 minutes by InsertLogic, to Portal 2 in 1 hour and a minute, It Takes Two, game of the year at the Game Awards and completed in 1 hour and 45 minutes, or even Deathloop in 26 minutes, Lost Judgment in 2h37, or even The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask in less than 39 minutes. In all, 140 performances were performed during the week.

For now, the replays of the runs are available on the Games Done Quick Youtube channel, but should quickly appear on that of the French Restream. In any case, this new edition is a success, welcomed by Games Done Quick and Prevent Cancer, who said on Twitter:

AGDQ2024 raised a total amount of $3,416,729 for prevent cancer! This is officially the most we’ve ever raised in GamesDoneQuick’s history, yet another world record! Thank you to everyone who made this marathon possible, and thank you all for your generosity and support. (Games done Quick).

Your support means a lot to us @GamesDoneQuick. The #AGDQ2024 event was exciting and raised more than ever before – $3.4 million! It will make so much difference in the lives of so many people.

In total, and in 12 years, Games Done Quick raised nearly $38 million. The next appointment is made for the Frost Fatales 2024, which will take place from February 27 to March 5. This summer Summer Games Done Quick will resume, but the dates have yet to be announced by the organization.
