SFU50 Wellness Day: Break a Guinness World Record

February 10, 2016

We’re taking 'study break' to a whole new level... by breaking a world record.

Specifically, the world record for the most people performing lunges at once, currently held by Mercedes College in Perth, Australia. Calling all students, faculty and staff: The number to beat is 802 people!

What's in it for you?

Everyone who registers and attends is entered to win:

  • An entry in our $250 prize draw
  • An entry in our fitness clothing giveaway, with gift cards to Lululemon, SportChek, Foot Locker and SFU Spirit Shop
  • Tons of other prizes!

What if I register with a team? Am I eligible for more prizes?

Yes! For teams and student clubs:

  • Register your team of 10 or more people to be entered in an exclusive $500 prize draw, to earn money for your club!
  • For every 10 people that are registered and show up for the event, one more prize draw entry is added.
  • Only teams of 10 more people who register and attend are eligible! (e.g. team of 10 people = 1 ticket entry; team of 20 people = 2 ticket entries)
  • And, the student club with the biggest team wins a guaranteed $500 for your club.

WHEN: Monday, March 14, 2016 from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm

WHERE: SFU Convocation Mall, Burnaby Campus
