Awesome Games Done Quick Announces 2023 Dates

0

Awesome Games Done Quick announces the dates of its next annual charity speedrunning in 2023. Fortunately, viewers will be able to watch and participate from home, as the Awesome Games Done Quick event will be held entirely online.

For more than ten years, Games Done Quick has been holding charity events dedicated to high-speed marathons. The best players from all over the world win games in a matter of minutes, which in other ordinary attempts would take tens of hours. Viewers participate by donating live, with all proceeds going to a charity that Games Done Quick collaborates with; it has raised more than $37 million for charity so far. The 2022 charity event held earlier this year was the first personal event held by Games Done Quick since the start of the pandemic, and it raised more than $3 million. In 2023, Games Done Quick will return to fully online hosting, and the charity event will be held from January 8 to January 15.

This year’s event is supported by the Cancer Prevention Foundation. The Foundation is engaged in the prevention and early detection of cancer. For this important reason, the event will be held 24 hours a day during the week, and viewers will be able to donate directly to charity from the Games Done Quick website. It is assumed that a link will be provided from the Games Done Quick Twitch channel, from where viewers will watch and participate. This isn’t the first time Awesome Games Done Quick has made donations to cancer research. In 2021, Games Done Quick donated $2.7 million to a cancer research charity while playing Halo 3.

The Cancer Prevention Foundation was founded in 1985 by Carolyn Aldige, who had lost her father to cancer a year earlier. She wanted to create a foundation that would focus more on prevention rather than treatment, because Aldige believed that this would be the best contribution of humanity to reducing cancer mortality. The goal of the Cancer Prevention Foundation is to reduce all cancer deaths by 40% by 2035, which is what they are trying to achieve. Cancer awareness is also high among the Destiny 2 community during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

It is currently unknown whether viewers can expect unexpected content in 2023, since last year Games Done Quick held speed races blindfolded. Awesome Games Done Quick did not specify which games will be presented in 2023, but, nevertheless, viewers will want to see this event live to become part of a good cause in which games are also widely presented.
