The Rocks For Heart event is a five-day event from September 28th – October 2nd 2017 in hopes of breaking the Guinness World Record for the longest curling game played, currently set by a group in Switzerland at 100 hours 3 minutes and 25 seconds.

This is not the first time that this event has been organized to break a world record. In 2011, a group from Bala Ont. set the record at 60 hours at that time supporting the Radio For Radiology campaign. When that record was broken by groups in Campbell River B.C., and Dumfries Scotland, organizer Bill Pearce decided it was time to bring the record back to Canada and organize an 80 hour attempt in Coldwater Ont., this time supporting the Radio For Radiation campaign. The group completed a 79 hour 15 minute 3 second record and held the official Guinness World Record for 14 months before a group in Switzerland set the record at just over 100 hours.

Determined to once again bring the record back to Canada, Pearce has begun organizing the third record attempt known as Rocks For Heart in order to set a new Guinness World Record as well as raise funds and awareness for the Radio for Cardiology campaign with Larche Communications.

The event is being held at the Coldwater & District Curling Club from September 28th – October 2nd. There will be a number of events happening during the event including a silent auction, funspiel, curling marketplace, etc. Everyone is encouraged to drop by the Coldwater & District Curling Club at anytime throughout the day to support the curlers during their journey.
