Games Done Quick, the channel and website that features incredible speedrunning marathons for charity, has announced dates for their annual summer event. The aptly named Summer Games Done Quick event is set to take place July 4-11, 2021.
With the interest of people’s safety in mind, the Summer Games Done Quick event will be entirely online, this year. It’s commendable that the organizers of this event aren’t taking any chances with the pandemic, even as most of the world takes part in a vaccine rollout. The same can’t be said for the likes of the Olympics, NFL, SDCC, and so on.
As always the Summer Games Done Quick event will use this event to raise money for charity. Since 2010, Games Done Quick has raised more than $31 million for charities around the world, including Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières, Prevent Cancer Foundation, Direct Relief, AbleGamers, Malala Fund, and Organization for Autism Research.
Speedrunners can submit their speedrunning submissions from March 31, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. EDT to April 11. For more information on submitting your speedrunning submissions, click here.
Summer Games Done Quick will broadcast July 4, 2021 to July 11, 2021 on the official Games Done Quick Twitch Channel.
