An attempt at setting a new Guinness World Record will take place in Edmonton on the May long weekend. Led by longtime ball hockey player & enthusiast, TANYA HAMILTON and her great group of volunteers have organized this event, in which 40 players will try to set the record for the World's longest outdoor ball hockey game, They will attempt to beat the previous record of 105 hours & 17 minutes, which was set in Lethbridge in 2008.
The big winners in this event will be the great local charity of KIDSPORT ... did you know that 1 of 3 families cannot afford to pay for their kids to play sports? That's where Kidsport comes in with their help to assist the kids to be able to play. This event will raise money through donations, sponsoring the ball hockey players players who will be playing, a silent auction with great items to bid on, and donations from local businesses.
You can still help by sponsoring one of the ball hockey players who is playing in the event, or come by the event to bid on some of the great silent auction items. The attempt will go May 19-23 at Rio Terrace Community League.
