A group of players are attempting the Guinness World Record for the world’s longest hockey game in Canada. To accomplish the goal, they are contending with temperatures of minus 58 degrees!
The participants said they began February 4 and are aiming to play until 6 a.m. on February 15, when the game will have lasted for 252 consecutive hours. The players said the extreme cold has added some extra challenges to the already demanding test of endurance.
The players, who each take 6-8 hour shifts on the ice before resting, are aiming to raise about $1.2-million for cancer research.
