One-hundred-and-fifty-five Santas safely landed in Australia on Sunday during an official Guinness World Records title attempt for the Most tandem parachute jumps in eight hours.
Experience gift retailer RedBalloon organised the challenge in Wollongong, Australia as part of their Christmas marketing campaign.
The company had partnered with children’s cancer charity Camp Quality, inviting involved families and volunteers to dress up as Father Christmas and take part in the festive once-in-a-lifetime challenge.
The event raised an incredible total of $5,000.
Nick Baker, RedBalloon CEO, was ecstatic about achieving a new world record: “We broke the Guinness World Records title for the world’s largest surf lesson last year and had such a blast that we wanted to do something even more thrilling this year. It’s becoming a bit of a RedBalloon Christmas tradition.
“RedBalloon is all about creating moments and that’s something we definitely achieved today. We hope that each and every participant had fun and relished the opportunity to tick skydiving off their bucket list, and leaves today with another great Christmas memory,” he added.
Camp Quality Regional Manager - ACT/Illawarra Sonia Cameron (pictured below) said: “We loved being a part of this very special Guinness World Records event and it was great to see the smiles on the faces of our Camp Quality families.”
Last year 320 Aussies celebrated their summer Christmas by taking part in the Largest surfing lesson, hosted by RedBalloon.
