Speedrunning charity event Games Done Quick (GDQ) has raised more than $400,000 for coronavirus relief.
That's according to the show's Twitter account (below), in which GDQ thanked everyone who had donated to the event.
This followed the 2020 Summer Games Done Quick charity speedrun marathon being cancelled due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. GDQ instead decided to hold a new event, Corona Relief Done Quick, which ran between April 17th and 19th. All proceeds are being donated to Direct Relief.
The marathon saw people speedrunning Switch titles such as Super Mario Odyssey, Kirby Star Allies, and Pokemon Sword.
