Summer Games Done Quick 2023 was raising money for Doctors Without Borders once again.

The $2.2 million raised this year is a 26.7 per cent decrease on the $3 million made from the 2022 iteration of Summer Games Done Quick, perhaps reflecting the economic downturn and people having less in the way of disposable income.

In total, Games Done Quick events have raised $46,240,273.28 for charity.
