Since the puck dropped August 26th at Burnaby's 8 Rinks, 40 courageous women from across Canada are still going strong on the ice with the goal to break the Guinness World Record for the Longest Game of Ice Hockey.

The two teams of  women are determined to play a continuous game until the very last minute to raise awareness and funds for Cystic Fibrosis Canada.


Families, friends and a group of dedicated volunteers are at the ice rink day and night to support the teams. CBC Vancouver News, Sport Reporter Shane Foxman will be a guest referee September 2nd from 10am - 12pm.  

The teams aim to raise $400,000 by the end of their 10 continuous day of hockey. As of the first day of September, the teams have raised over $104,000, played over 130 hours of hockey and scored over 1100 goals between the two teams. The game has now passed over 160 hours and reached over 1500 goals between the two teams. The women are just a weekend away to break the world record of the longest hockey game on Monday, September 5th.
