2 WVU Students Will Break World Record for Make-A-Wish

Posted: Updated:

Two WVU students are trying to get their names in the record books while raising money for a good cause.

Skyler Banfill and Ian Lake are playing billiards to raise money for Make-A-Wish.

The two will begin playing pool on March 9 and continue playing until they break the world record.

They are trying to raise at least four thousand dollars, which is about the cost of granting one wish.

"Records that were revolving around pool and a lot didn't have a lot of point to them, like how long you can balance a pool cue on your fingertip for instance. We found the longest pool marathon, we thought that was very doable. And we knew that was an opportunity to help a really good cause," Banfill explained.

"For 80 hours we have to play continuous pool games. Just have to keep playing each other. We can get five minute breaks every hour, but we can stack those breaks. So, if we play for five hours we get twenty five minutes of break time," said Lake.

If you would like to watch,  two will begin on Sunday March 9 at 9 a.m. at Anytime Billiards in Uniontown, Pennsylvania.
