Games Done Quick’s annual summer event had to be first postponed, and later moved online due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but despite the many obstacles the charity marathon event will be going ahead from this Sunday, August 16.
The event runs 24 hours a day for a full week from the 16th to the 23rd, with all proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders, a charity GDQ has raised millions for in the past. This year, due to the delay on the summer event, GDQ added an extra event in April to raise money for coronavirus relief.
While the event no longer has a physical presence, for most viewers at home the experience will be the same. Summer Games Done Quick will stream throughout the length of the event on its Twitch channel, with videos also available after the fact on YouTube.
