Archives For Kathleen Henkel


Kathleen Henkel has traveled to third world countries and watched her children have children. But perhaps none of that can prepare the 68 year-old for her next task, as she attempts to play a video game for 30 consecutive hours.

The New Jersey-native traveled to New York on Tuesday to begin the quest with PopCap’s “Solitaire Blitz.” Her and another contestant from England will attempt the feat to raise almost $100,000 for charity: water, which provides clean water to developing nations. Although Henkel is strongly motivated by the non-profit and is a life-long solitaire player, even she wasn’t sure how she would manage to stay awake for so many hours.
