On Friday, 40 brave players took to the ice again for 10 days straight to support the fight against cancer.

The World’s Longest Hockey Game (WLHG) takes place at Saiker’s Acres on an outdoor NHL-sized rink, east of Edmonton. The opening ceremony was Friday morning.

The game raises funds for the Alberta Cancer Foundation to support Terry Fox Research Institute’s PROFYLE, that focuses on gene sequencing and pediatric cancer. Since 2003, the event has raised more than $3.4 million for the cause.

A week into the game, an anonymous donor came forward to say they were “so moved by the inspiring story,” they wanted to match all individual donations to the game. Now, each individual dollar donated will count twice.

Three days into the World’s Longest Hockey Game east of Edmonton, the players are keeping their eyes on the prize. Not only are they aiming for a Guinness World Record, they’re also raising money for a cancer program. On Feb. 12, 2018, Su-Ling Goh filed this report explaining what the program is all about.

On Thursday, an urgent plea for additional referees and linesmen was put out after Guinness officials told the WLHG it needed double the number of officials than it thought.

One of the organizers later tweeted they had received an overwhelming response, and they were working to reply to everyone who offered to help out.

The game runs from Feb. 9 to Feb. 19. Players sleep in four-hour shifts as they aim to complete 251 hours of non-stop hockey.

In 2003, the game lasted 82 hours. In 2018, they have to play for longer than 250 hours.

This year’s event is expected to see 25,000 guests, 500 cups of coffee (per day!), 100 broken sticks and some fairly substantial player injuries.
