Bryce Casey 30 Hours through His 55-Hour Bowling Challenge

The Rock’s Bryce Casey is 30 Hours through His 55-Hour Bowling Challenge for Cure Kids


He’s tired, he’s sore, but he’s still going – The Rock’s Bryce Casey isn’t quite broken yet as he aims to bowl for 55 consecutive hours to raise money for Cure Kids.

Casey began his ‘Breaking Bryce’ bowling challenge on Wednesday at 6.30am live on The Rock’s Morning Rumble breakfast show. It’s been 10 years since his first attempt (and subsequent failure) to break the world record for the longest marathon of ten-pin bowling. Exactly 10 years later, the hope is that he’ll bowl for a consecutive 55 hours and 16 minutes, beating his own record of 52 hours and 26 minutes that he set in 2004 and matching the then world record.

“I’m definitely starting to struggle,” says Casey. “The worst part is probably the continuous noise of the pins being knocked down and re-set. That noise on repeat for a good 55 hours could make anyone go crazy!”

He may be over it but Casey has some great motivation to keep going. So far he’s raised over $24,000 for Cure Kids and the donations are coming through thick and fast. The public can support Casey and make an instant donation of $3 to Cure Kids by texting the keyword ‘BREAK’ to 933, or they can make an online donation at rednoseday.co.nz/BreakingBryce.

The ‘Breaking Bryce’ bowling challenge is being broadcast live on The Rock and is streaming live online at therock.net.nz.

Ends.
