NOT SO Sport Relief | World Record Charity Challenge

Mike Buss, Swindon’s own world record breaking endurance athlete is ready for his next challenge, but this time it doesn’t involve an ounce of exercise, this time he is going to sit watching TV for 6days…

That’s right; Mike is attempting the world record for the longest TV Marathon, to watch DVDs back to back to break the current world record of 5days and 21mins.  Mike starts the world record attempt on Monday 19th March and is aiming to go right through to Saturday 24th, breaking the world record by one day.

Online donations can be made at:

Mike is raising money for the BBC Sport Relief and due to the nature of the world record Mike came up with a pun on words by calling it the Not So Sport Relief Challenge. 

Local and nationally known companies are involved supporting the event including the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet Village (swindon) where the event is taking place along with John Lewis Home Outlet, Cafe Mattia, The Energy Kitchen (all based in the Swindon Designer Outlet), Johnsons Cars of Swindon, Swindon Web & Infinite8 Productions.

Mike is hoping to raise £100 per day with a total of £600 and is inviting anyone who would like to try 24hrs to get sponsored for any of the days during the event.

John Lewis will be displaying a living room set up where Mike will attempt to spend 6days infront of the TV.  The Energy Kitchen will be supplying Mike with all his drinks and Cafe Mattia will be providing Mike with Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.

Johnsons Cars are also helping with the logistical set up of Mikes Record Attempt.

Come down to the Swindon designer Outlet and give Mike your support with a chance of winning £15 for a £2 donation and other raffle prizes donated by local business.

If you are a local business that would like to also support the event then please get in touch with Mike on: 07791 356 482.

Fancy getting sponsored for a 24hr TV Marathon yourself? then contact Mike to book a 24hr period with Mike to keep him company through the dark hours and get sponsored yourself…  Sponsor Packs can be got from the officialt Sport Relief Website  or direct from Mike.

Mike will be blogging on his facebook page, each day to let everyone know how he is getting on.
