Stars from the world of sport, media and art are set to take part in an attempt to break the world record for the largest swimwear parade in Australia this Friday.

The parade, which is set to begin at Martin Place, Sydney at 12 noon, forms part of the annual Strut the Streets event which raises money for the charity Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME), which aims to improve education for indigenous children.

A host of Australian personalities are set to take part in the attempt, including ABC 702's Adam Spencer, former dual international Wendell Sailor and NITV anchor Natalie Ahmat.

Representatives from the HSBC Waratahs, Fox Sports, Bondi Rescue and Bangarra Dance Theatre have also pledged to march through Martin Place.

The current world record stands at 603 people, achieved in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2010.

Speaking ahead of the event, AIME CEO Jack Manning Bancroft said: "This is the fourth year that we've run Strut the Streets and we're shooting for 604 people to break the Guinness World Records title for the Largest swimwear parade. There's a whole lot of people out there who want to show the world that we'll go to any length to see the day when every Indigenous kid finishes school at the same rate as every Australian kid," Mr Manning Bancroft said.
