Hockey Marathon For The Kids
April 5th – April 16th 2024
We Are Doing It Again in 2024
Donation Goal For Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation
Despite the remarkable rise in cure rates for childhood cancer over the last 50 years, 20% of children and adolescents diagnosed with cancer will die of their disease. To ensure that those children who are currently not expected to survive due to cancer have a chance at cure, and to continue to strive for the highest quality of life for survivors, our patients and families need access to the newest and best treatment options here in Calgary.

About Hockey Marathon
The game started in 2012 when 40 men took to the ice to raise funds for the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation all while trying to break the Guinness Book of World Records for most consecutive hours of playing ice hockey. The goal was achieved and exceeded by raising 1.2M for the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation and playing 246 hours of hockey. Two short years later, the game happened again. This time raising 1.7M for the Alberta Children’s Hospital and breaking their own record playing 248 consecutive hours of hockey. Then in 2020 almost 1 M was raised and these 40 hero’s broke another world record of 261 consecutive hours
After 2 years it is time to do it again! The game remains the same, the goal is higher. 40 players will try to play 262 consecutive hours and beat their own record. We want to raise awareness and funds to ensure children will have a chance to survive this horrible disease. No child and no family should have to go through this so we skate for all of those fighting today, tomorrow and in the future. We also play for those that lost their battle, for their memory to continue on each time we are on the ice.
We hope that you will join us at the Chestermere Recreation Center and cheer on the 40 players as the players try to continue to beat the Guinness Book of World Records all while raising significant funds for the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation and other local charities.
