24 Hours of Hockey for Habitat
The only event of its kind in central Ohio, local hockey players embark on a full 24 hours of hockey beginning with the first puck drop on Friday night and continuing unabated until 7:30 Saturday evening. The event -- and proceeds collected -- benefit Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio and is intended to bring awareness to Habitat MidOhio’s Veterans Home Build & Repair programs.
The 5th Annual 24 Hours of Hockey for Habitat was held on June 18-19 at Chiller North and raised over $37,000. Over its lifetime this event has helped 37 veterans achieve or save the dream of homeownership with over $200,000 raised. Fundraising for the 5th Annual 24 Hours of Hockey for Habitat will continue through July 16, 2021, to donate click here: https://bit.ly/5HockeyforHabitat
Over the course of the 24 Hour event period, each skater will see 12 hours of ice time, in either two, three, or four-hour blocks. Goalies will have eight hours of ice time, split into four, two-hour shifts. There will be a resting period for each player following their on-ice time with nutrition/hydration and a sleeping/resting area provided.
Participants must be at least 18 years of age to play in this event. All skill levels welcome.
Each participant must commit to raising a minimum of $500. Donations can be accepted online through a personalized fundraising page or submitted directly to Habitat for Humanity - MidOhio.
