Summer Games Done Quick, an annual speedrunning marathon, smashed records this year by fundraising a total of $3,006,188.87 from over 50,000 donors (donations are still open; this is the current amount at this time of writing).
The week-long event began last Sunday and concluded yesterday. The team had already achieved a whopping $1 million on Thursday, just four days in. Once $2 million was reached, it took only a few hours to get to $3 million.
In comparison, Summer Games Done Quick raised $2.1 million last year, which was a record up until now.
