Another Summer Games Done Quick, the summer rendition of the bi-annual charity speedrunning event, has come and gone. This year, SGDQ 2021 managed to raise $2.9 million for the humanitarian group Doctors Without Borders.

Over the past week, a wide variety of speedrunners played their runs at the 11th SGDQ event to help raise money for Doctors Without Borders, or Médecins Sans Frontières, as it's known in its native French. This international humanitarian group provides medical care to people affected by disasters and armed conflict no matter who they are. After the event wound down, SGDQ 2021 managed to raise a grand total of $2,909,369.35 from 40351 donors, just shy of their record of $3 million in the 2019 SGDQ. As for their next events, Games Done Quick will be holding Fleet Fatales, which features female and non-binary speedrunners, from August 15-21, and AGDQ 2022 will be held January 9-16.
