Worlds Longest Hockey Game – Needs Support

The Chestermere Rec Center is the site for a World Record 10.5 Day non-stop hockey game to raise money for the Calgary Children’s Hospital.  As of today, day 3, they have received substantial support totaling near $700,000 and there are a few big cheques yet to come in.  However without support from people like you, they will not beat Edmonton’s (yes… Edmonton’s) total of $1.3 Million from their (shorter… of course) marathon hockey game last year.

If you want more information or can make even a small $20 donation to help our Hospital help kids with Cancer and other terrifying problems, go to hockeymarathon.com .  There is also a number of videos of the events on YouTube, like THIS one and THIS one.  Chestermerian Jose Rodriguez, who is the editor of the Calgary Sun, arranged for a $100,000 donation and is also hosting a live Webcam which you tune into HERE .

They would LOVE you to come out and cheer them on even if it is only for a short while.  You can’t beat the price, free, and as you might expect it is running 24 hours a day so you can just drop in anytime.  No-one will bother you to make a donation while you are there and on display is a very good silent auction.

Some come on everyone, pitch a few bucks for sick kids and try to make it out to the game!
