Martin Parnell has run hundred of marathons during his endurance career. Now, he’s part of a Guinness world record for the longest indoor lacrosse game ever.
The 24-hour game was played last Friday and Saturday in Calgary, Alberta, with Parnell hoping to raise $50,000 (Cdn.) towards Right to Play.
In February, the National Lacrosse League announced Right To Play as the officially designated joint charity of the NLL and the Professional Lacrosse Players’ Association (PLPA). The groups will work to design and develop a “Lacrosse For Development” program to be implemented in Canada.
“I paced myself. I would have died otherwise,” Parnell told Katie Turner of Metro Calgary. He registered a hat trick in the game that had a final score of 299-296.
Almost $29,000 (Cdn.) has been raised with donations still being accepted at hotboxlacrosse.com.
