The Heart and Stroke Foundation of P.E.I. wants to try to break the Guinness Record for longest line of coins.

They're calling it Quarter Magic.

They want Islanders to help them collect about 3.4 million quarters, with the goal of lining them up at Charlottetown's Eastlink Centre on Nov. 22.

It is the charity's biggest-ever fundraiser.

"We will have our collectible cans out in the public and a number of businesses are acting as champions and doing special events to raise quarters," said foundation CEO Charlotte Comrie.

"We need approximately six to 10 dollars from every Islander to meet our goal."

The Heart and Stroke Foundation says the quarters, worth about $850,000, will stretch out over a length of 80 kilometres.

Eighty kilometers would easily beat the current record of 64.88 kilometers. It was set by Youth Activities Team in Fort Scott, Kansas in July 2008. The team used 3,406,234 pennies.

They plan to use the money for a three-year P.E.I. stroke education campaign.
