Summer Games Done Quick raised another record amount, passing $ 3 million this time around. That's nearly 50 percent better than the MSF's Speedrunning Marathon in 2018. More importantly, it's the first time an Games Done Quick event has raised more than $ 3 million. Currently, the total of more than 50,000 donors is $ 3,005,788.87. However, this number usually changes on the day after the end of the event when more donations are received. The sum shatters the $ 2.1 million accumulated last year, which was also a record at the time.
The Awesome Games Done Quick companion series has been around for some time and has gained more in the past, but the last marathon in January brought in $ 2.4 million.
