The Hockey Marathon for Kids game wrapped up yesterday (April 17), and they raised a staggering $1.5 million for the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation.

43 players took to the ice to raise funds for the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation while trying to break the Guinness Book of World Records for the most consecutive hours of playing ice hockey.

"The response thus far has been great from the community. I just had a gentleman call today, and he donated 25 grand, whereas other people donated 100 bucks, 50 bucks, and 3000 bucks. So, you know, I'm pretty confident we should hit that mark of $2 million," explained Alex Halat, organizer for the event.

262 hours of hockey were played. 

"From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank our sponsors, all those who donated, our thousands of volunteers, and everyone who cheered the players on - whether at the rink or watching online," it stated on the Hockey Marathon for Kids Facebook Page. 

Donations are still being accepted on the Hockey Marathon for Kids website.
