The Longest Day fundraiser for Alzheimer's research

Love hockey and helping people? Join The Longest Game on the Longest Day and help raise money for Alzheimer's research. Hockey players will be on the ice from 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m., and every goal scored means a donation.

Be a part of the longest hockey game ever in Alabama (and maybe the South)! 

Huntsville, Alabama has a great hockey community with deep roots, so we're excited to bring this unique concept to the Rocket City. Taking place on the longest day of the year, The Longest Game will feature 8 to 12 hours of hockey to benefit the Alzheimer's Association.

Each goal that is scored will raise money for a good cause. Adding to the fun are special "Power Play" twists - allowing donors to select from a menu of advantages or disadvantages to apply to a team or individual players.

  • Players will be assigned to either the Purple team or the White team. 
  • The number of players on each team depends on the number of registrants.
  • Players can play as much of the game as they want.
