We love when a good news story is shared with us. And this one is doubly good – not only was a Guinness world record set to make awareness for the non-profit Big Brothers Big Sisters organisation, but lots of these lovely families also got a surprise gift to take home with them, at the end of the day! Watch: The World Record Holding Longest Swing Ever Made.
Would you like to see the Guinness world record holding longest swing set in the world? It’s over 562 feet long, has 127 swings, and 51 slides, and it’s pretty epic!
Backyard Discovery built the swing set to raise awareness for Big Brothers Big Sisters, the amazing non-profit organization that provides one to one mentoring for kids.
There was also a surprise twist to the record setting event. Each of the 51 sections that made up the swing set were donated to attending Big Brothers Big Sisters families. All swing sets were donated, on behalf of Backyard Discovery, to surprise children with the greatest need.
A world record and a good news story – what’s not to love?!
