In the spirit of National Homelessness Awareness Month, this event is being held to raise awareness for homeless children. According to Families Matter Most Foundation Chairperson, Sylvia Wayfer-Clark, more than 1.5 children in America are faced with homeless.
The group will begin their world record challenge at 12noon on Saturday, October 15th and Wayfer-Clark attempt to break the record as she continuously rides in a bumper car, along with other riders, for 26-hours, until Sunday, October 16th at 2pm. The current world record is 24-hours, held in Vienna, Austria, on September 2007. During the 26-hour marathon, the bumper car ride will remain open to the general public. When asked how she intends to accomplish this feat, Wayfer-Clark replied, “Coffee, licorice and bubble gum”!
