After a week of speedruns, Summer Games Done Quick 2017 is now over. We know, it’s sad. But, it did manage to set a record: SGDQ 2017 raised more money for charity than any other SGDQ event, ever! Together, donations totalled a whopping $1,760,400 as the event ended.

This event was for Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières), a charity focused on providing medical support in countries affected by war or disease. Last year’s SGDQ raised $1,294,139.50 according to a graph made over on Reddit by kebab4you, meaning this year broke that by almost $400,000.
