World’s Longest Hockey Game braves the cold

Despite bone-chilling temperatures between -40 and -55 Celsius, an outdoor hockey game raising money for cancer research in Alberta is continuing in Sherwood Park, east of Edmonton. Eye doctor Brent Saik who founded the world’s longest hockey game in 2003, says he’s hoping players will reach their goal to raise 1.5-million-dollars by 6 a.m. Monday, when they will hit the 252-hour mark and break their own Guinness World Record.

BCN speaks with organizer Kate Gallagher, who describes what the players have had to endure this week.
