The second day of Awesome Games Done Quick Online 2021 is underway. Speedrunners across the globe are looking to raise money for good causes from the comfort of their homes.

On its first day, fans of the popular speedrun streaming event were treated to a handful of new and exciting games, including an Ori and the Will of the Wisps race that was as close as it can get.

Moving into day two, however, fans of the show can expect to watch a big Sonic the Hedgehog block in which speedrunners will try to complete a lot of classic Sonic games, such as Sonic 3. Some new (Sonic Mania) and hated Sonic titles (Sonic 06) are also scheduled to appear throughout the day.

It’s all for a good cause, though. In just under 24 hours, the speedrun event has already raised well over $100,000 for the Prevent Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit organization focused on the prevention and early detection of cancer around the world.

The GDQ events usually bring in millions of dollars for charities across the globe each year, so many fans will be keeping an eye on what the final total will be this weekend after the last speedrun is completed.
