Going on right now: a speed run marathon for charity

Speed Demos Archive, the place where gaming’s most impressive athletes demonstrate their mastery, is currently holding Awesome Games Done Quick, a week-long fundraising event, the proceeds of which are entirely donated to the Prevent Cancer Foundation. Speed runners will attempt more than 100 games – including Battletoads, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and Mass Effect – continuously throughout the week. It’s the sixth such event hosted by Speed Demos Archive; last year’s Awesome Games Done Quick raised almost $150,000 for the foundation. So watch, and donate!
