Longest Game for CF

There is a very exciting event happening in August I want to tell you about.  It’s an attempt to break a world record, all while raising money for a fantastic cause. It’s called “Longest Game 4 CF.”

The lowdown:

Forty determined Vancouver, BC women will storm the ice this August in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the Longest Game of Ice Hockey.

The puck drops on August 26, at the Canlan Ice Sports Burnaby rinks, and the women will play one continuous game for 10 consecutive days, to raise funds and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis Canada.

There are LOTS of ways you can get involved in the kick off party and the hockey tournament, whether you’re in Vancouver, BC or across the globe.

Here are some of them:

– sponsor a player

– donate water, snacks

– donate cash to offset costs

– donate cash/items for the silent auction

– volunteer!

This event is inspired by and in memory of women who’ve lost their lives to CF.  One in particular I’ve blogged about before: Eva Markvoort.  An amazing award-winning documentary was created about her battle. It’s called 65_redroses and follows Eva’s battle with CF.  You can WATCH IT HERE.

Check out their website today and get involved!  Many of the players are fellow lezbots, so you sisters pay extra notice.

    Great post! The support shown for this event has been incredible and who wouldn’t want to be part of history!

    These women are doing an amazing thing and we’re all looking forward to seeing lots of your faces out there at the game. Hope you can all make it!

    No, I’m not playing…I’ll be the one still able to walk when it’s all over : )
