STAMFORD - A group of hockey players started skating around-the-clock on Saturday in an effort to help others.

The "Skate 24 To Find a Cure" fundraiser is taking place at Twin Rinks in Stamford.

The participants are playing hockey for the Jimmy Fund, which benefits cancer research. They will play continuously through Sunday afternoon.

Organizers say if they succeed in playing for more than 24 hours, they will shatter the record of the longest continuous game in U.S. history.
