Do you enjoy video games? Have you ever watched someone play a really difficult game and beat it in under an hour? Did you love it? Do you also like the idea of helping the fight against cancer? Then you should check out Awesome Games Done Quick 2014!

Awesome Games Done Quick 2014 otherwise known as AGDQ is a live stream event on Twitch.TV. Running from January 5th to January 11th this event showcases "speed runners" from the Speed Demos Archive who play classic video games in record times.

The biggest reason to get excited about this event is that all proceeds go to support the Prevent Cancer Foundation. As of this writing the donations have already exceeded $500,000 and are expected to rise significantly!

Even if you can’t donate yourself you can help just by watching the event on Twitch.TV. Twitch has offered to donate based on the number of concurrent viewers the live stream gets, meaning the more viewers the more money is donated!

If you haven’t had a chance to check out this example of humanity at its finest then you should go now! Head over to the main website here or check out the twitch channel here!
