On Friday 2 May, WWTW are organising an incredible Guinness World Record Attempt for ‘The Largest Three-Legged Race Across Multiple Venues’ – and we need YOU!
Walking With The Wounded are looking to get as many schools and students as possible to take part, at the same time, in this brilliant national event. The record stands at 930 pairs, but we know that we can beat that if we get as many schools as possible involved, and we’re planning to beat it 20 times over! Students who take on the challenge will be tied together in teams of two to hop, skip and probably stumble their way down a 200 metre course, raising money for Walking With The Wounded by having fun and taking part in a Guinness World Record Attempt for their school.
We want to engage young people and get them thinking creatively about fundraising, inspiring a love of charity and giving from a young age through fun activities and local community: each participant in the Three Legged Race will be raising a minimum of £5 for wounded service personnel.
“This new Guinness World Record Attempt is a fantastic opportunity for Walking With The Wounded to engage with local communities and encourage school children to get involved with the charity. We hope this will be a huge nationwide event with participants taking us well over the current World Record of 1,860 participants. It is a great way to raise awareness about what we do as an organisation and get a much younger audience involved with our fundraising. Thank you to everyone who has shown their support so far and please do get involved and help us set a new World Record.”
Andrew Cook, Director of Fundraising, Walking With The Wounded
