Awesome Games Done Quick 2014: Fighting Cancer with Games!

Awesome Games Done Quick

For some reason, I only JUST found out about this event — a week-long, 24-hour livestream of video game speedruns done to raise funds for cancer research through the Prevent Cancer Foundation. A great thing for a great cause: as of this posting, they’ve raised $363,000 of their $500,000 goal! I’ve been watching on-and-off since Tuesday and I’ve gotta say, as someone who knows one too many people touched by cancer, and as a gamer, that I’m very happy this event exists to help people.

EDIT: They ultimately raised over one million dollars! $1,023,218.02 as of 1/14 10 AM CST.┬áThat’s amazing.
