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 will return to the lanes to do it again - for a very real cause. And he needs your help.
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 (3,500) that tried to take their own life in 2018, 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. Bryce's 58 hour bowling challenge will be live streamed on The Rock website.
To support the cause, The Rock Waikato will be hosting an event at SKYCITY Hamilton Bowl & Social during the final hours of the live-stream, where you will be able to watch Bryce on the big screens, while having a game of bowling with your mates and supporting the cause!
WHEN: Friday 31st May 2019, 2pm - 5pm.
WHERE: Bowl & Social, SKYCITY Hamilton.
COST: $20 for a group of 4-6 people.
ALL proceeds will be going directly to the I AM HOPE Foundation.
