History was made in Buffalo early this morning.
From June 22 to July 3, forty amateur hockey players took part in the world’s longest hockey game. Known as the 11 Day Power Play, the initiative was created by Mike and Amy Lesakowski as a way to raise money for cancer research and it was an absolute success.
The two teams combined for 3,422 goals in the game, with Team Blue coming out on top over Team White by a score of 1,725 to 1,697.
Thanks to the efforts by the forty players and the 3,272 people who invested in the cause, they were able to raise $1.2 million towards cancer research.
The fact that these guys just played hockey for 250 consecutive hours is incredible, and it’s even more incredible that they managed to raise over $1 million by playing hockey.
