Awesome Games Done Quick 2015 is a speedrunning marathon to raise funds for the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

The annual event is now in full swing, and you can tune in via the Twitch stream below.

If you’d like to keep the volunteers at their posts, sling a donation their way via the website. In addition to standard donations, you can help determine which games the team plays and which characters they use where applicable.

So far, the marathon has raised over $80,000, and the teams have completed 156 runs. The speedruns are moving at such a spanking pace, though, that that number has almost certainly increased by the time you read this.

As an alternative to donating, you can get something back for your cash by purchasing the latest Humble Bundle. Pay what you want for Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition, Shadow Warrior Classic Redux, Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee and Volgarr the Viking.

Fork over $6 or more to also receive a Twitch Turbo 30-Day Subscription and Shantae: Risky’s Revenge – Director’s Cut, as well as early access and two DLC packs for SpeedRunners.

Pay $10 or more for Escape Goat 2 and an XSplit Premium 3-Month Subscription, as well.

Between donations, Humble Bundle sales and a few other initiatives, this year’s winter Awesome Games Done Quick has already raised over $125,000.
