Have you ever thought about breaking a World Record, but didn't know what to do or how to do it? Now's your chance! To encourage children to do something good for both their health and the environment, National Geographic Kids has begun a new Run for the Planet campaign in an attempt to set two Guinness World Records. 
World Record #1: Longest Shoe Chain
Send in used athletic shoes which will then be tied together to break the record. These shoes won’t go to waste as they’ll all be recycled into athletic surfaces such as basketball courts and running tracks. National Geographic Kids has already received submissions from lots of celebrities such as Taylor Swift, Eli Manning, Danica Patrick and One Direction!
World Record #2: Most People Running (or Walking) 100 Meters in 24 hours
Children, families, schools, sports clubs and other groups are encouraged to participate in completing their 100-meters between noon ET, Friday, Oct. 26 and ending at noon ET Saturday, Oct. 27
To sign up and for further details please visit the Run for the Planet site. It’s easy to participate and great for recycling and health!
