Bryce Casey's Spare Change
HE DID IT!!!
Bryce the legend completed 58 hours of bowling, and helped raise $366,602.22 for Mike King's I Am Hope foundation.
That is so goddamn incredible and we couldn't be more proud.
Watch the moment above of him bowling his last bowl and letting the emotions overcome him during his interview with Jay Dunc and Rog.
BACKSTORY ON WHY BRYCE DID THIS
It’s been fifteen years since Bryce from the Morning Rumble came agonisingly close to breaking a world record, tenpin bowling for 58 hours.
5 years ago, he finally broke the record he set out to achieve in 2004.
Now, in 2019, Bryce returned to the lanes to do it again - for a very real cause.
The Rock has partnered with Mike King's I AM HOPE foundation to help keep the mental health conversation going, and help raise funds to get young Kiwis free counselling when they need it most.
Why 58 hours?
That's one minute for every person that tried to take their own life in 2018. Last year 3500, young Kiwis tried to take their own lives - that’s more than 10 a day. Every minute Bryce bowls will represent one of those New Zealanders.
I’ve lost too many friends & family to suicide. I know the everlasting effect it has on people.
"Let’s let the young people know where the help is for when they need it. Let’s change this."
Bryce will start bowling at 7am Wednesday May 29 and finish at 5pm Friday, May 31. The challenge will take place at Pins Lincoln, Henderson, Auckland. Bryce's 58 hour bowling challenge will be live streamed on The Rock website.
