From January 8 through January 15, 2023, Awesome Games Done Quick 2023 will be broadcast live online in support of the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
Although we would love to meet you again in person, we’ve decided that moving the event from its original scheduled location in Florida was the best option for making it safe and pleasant for everyone.
We don’t think a state is currently a safe place for our community due to the state’s continuous disdain for COVID-19’s risks (including anti-mandate vaccination measures) and rising hostility towards LGBTQ+ people, especially the law known as “Don’t Say, Gay.”
As soon as AGDQ 2020 was a success, we signed a contract with a Florida site to return in 2021. We postponed in-person events until it was safe to go back after the global pandemic was proclaimed.
We’ve looked into several options that would let us move to a safer area while still being present in person. We are no longer able to postpone our contract because the costs involved are too high to justify moving AGDQ while paying the cancellation charge. In the end, this prompted us to put AGDQ 2023 online.

What is Games Done Quick?
A series of video game marathons for good causes is called Games Done Quick. These competitions include expert gameplay by speedrunners who donate money to charities. In its nine-year existence, Games Done Quick has collaborated with several charities, including Doctors Without Borders and the Prevent Cancer Foundation. We are presently both charities’ biggest international fundraising event!
Over 34 million dollars have been donated to charity by Games Done Quick as of yet. Additionally, they typically have over 3000 attendees at their events, including staff, volunteers, runners, and spectators just there to support the event and have fun!
The Prevent Cancer Foundation is the event’s partner this year. Early cancer detection and prevention are the foundation’s main priorities. The competition will run seven days a week for this significant cause, and spectators will be able to make donations directly to the organization from the Games Done Quick website.
The Games Done Quick Twitch channel, where people will be viewing and participating, is likely to provide a link. Awesome Games Done Quick has previously made donations to support cancer research. Games Done Quick gave $2.7 million to a cancer research organization in 2021 while playing Halo 3.
Carolyn Aldigé established the Prevent Cancer Foundation in 1985 after losing her father to the disease the previous year. Aldigé thought that the best chance for reducing cancer fatalities for humanity was to develop a foundation that concentrated more on prevention than on therapy.
The Prevent Cancer Foundation is dedicated to achieving its aim of reducing all cancer-related deaths by 40% by 2035. During Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the Destiny 2 community is also quite cancer-aware.
Given that Games Done Quick had blindfolded speed runs in 2018, it is unknown at this moment whether viewers can anticipate surprises in 2023. Although Awesome Games Done Quick has not revealed the games that will be showcased in 2023, viewers will still want to watch the event live to support a worthwhile cause that also prominently features gaming.
Fantastic Games In January 2023, Done Quick will hold another live speedrunning competition for a good cause. This year’s event will only be available online and run from January 8 through January 15 of 2023. Of course, Nintendo will receive a lot of love, especially in the following games:

Where will Gdq 2023 be?
Florida was set to host the 2023 performance, but it would only be shown online. GDQ posted on Twitter, “While we would love to return in person, we’ve realized that we needed to shift away from our initially intended venue in Florida to provide a safe and inviting event to all.”
