Being in the Guinness Book of Records is one of those things I’ve dreamed of since I was a kid. You know, from the era of “I want to be a fireman”.
That book has always fascinated me. Can you imagine what it’s like to do something that NOBODY in the history of this planet has ever done before?
Martin is famous for running 250 marathons in 2010 as part of his Marathon Quest 250. His goal was to raise $250 000 for Right to Play, he raised more than $300 000. He has spun that effort into “Quest for Kids” that will see him taking on incredible challenges to raise the plight of kids to have the right to play around the world. Netball Quest 61 is next quest for Martin.
We will start at 530p on September 16 and not stop until 630a on September 19. 24 people will be on each team, 7 from each on court at a time. The other 5 will remain courtside, trying to catch some sleep. Julie Arnold, the event organizer from Netball Alberta, estimates we will each play 35 of the 61 hours. Sounds tough, but that’s why it’s never been done before.
And I’m about to do it. I’m about to be part of a Guinness. World. Record.
