National Geographic Kids Breaks Guinness World Records

By February 3, 2013

Follow me on:

On Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013, National Geographic Kids will display tens of thousands of shoes in the courtyard of the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington DC to announce two new Guinness World Records titles! The shoes, which include those of One Direction, Taylor Swift, Danica Patrick and Eli Manning, will be the largest collection of shoes to be recycled. National Geographic Kids will also be announcing the title of the program Run for the Planet, which counted the most number of people to run or walk 100 meters in 24 hours (an event held all across the world in October 2012). The records support First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! campaign, which encourages kids and families to get healthy and active. The event will start at 10 a.m. and feature National Geographic Kids and Guinness World Records spokespeople.
