Everest Funeral Concierge and TSN have announced the creation of the "Everest Curling Challenge", a new, world-class curling event taking place in Fredericton, NB, this August.
Airing across Canada on TSN and streaming live in the U.S. on ESPN3, the event will bring together 32 of the world’s top women’s and men’s curlers, with the world champion teams of Canada’s Brad Gushue and Rachel Homan the first to be revealed.
