Summer Games Done Quick raises more than $2m for Doctors Without Borders

High five!

The wonderful Summer Games Done Quick event has raised more than $2m for Doctors Without Borders.

The speedrunning charity drive raised $2.12m for the non-profit organisation, which delivers emergency medical aid to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters or exclusion from health care. Last year, SGDQ raised more than $1.7m.

There are some spectacular speedruns worth watching (and you can still donate via the GDQ website). Here are a few highlights to get you going:
