Awesome Games Done Quick, a week long charity event featuring players doing speed runs of various titles, has surpassed last year’s total and has raised over $1.5 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

Initially some bugs in the donation tracker put the charity event at $1.1 million raised, but after being sorted out the final, impressive total was announced by the organization on their website. The function which ran from January 5th-11th featured 164 completed speedruns included a blindfolded run of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and more.

You can check out all the highlights on the event’s official Twitch channel, and view all the runs on this Reddit thread.
