Awesome Games Done Quick - January 6-13, 2019

Awesome Games Done Quick 2019 took place January 6–13. Donors from around the world raised $2.4 million for cancer prevention and early detection. Thank you, AGDQ!

Awesome Games Done Quick is an annual live-streamed video game marathon organized by Games Done Quick to raise funds for the Prevent Cancer Foundation®. Hundreds of all-star gamers from around the world meet to speedrun—play as fast as possible—their favorite games.

Announcing new international work!

With funds from AGDQ, we are excited to support five new 2019 international cancer prevention and early detection grants in Ghana, Mexico, Nigeria, Poland and South Africa. The projects start this month and are focused on increasing quality screening or education for colorectal, breast, cervical or lung cancers.
