Take a look back at Bryce's first 56-hour bowling challenge in 2004

The Morning Rumble 14/05/2019

The year was 2004

Franz Ferdinand's 'Take Me Out' was topping the charts, Donald Trump was a TV star and our very own Bryce Casey had just started a 6-month internship with us at The Rock.

We decided to put him through the ringer early in the piece by getting him to break a Guinness World Record for the longest bowling session and - to be fair - he gave it a bloody good crack.

Check out how he did above.

15 years later, Bryce will bowl again. But this time for a bloody good 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 or succeeded in taking 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.

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.
