College Students Try to Crawl Into Record Book for Pediatric AIDS

Two College Students Will Crawl 33 Miles on June 10th, 2005 to Break the Guinness World Record and Raise Money for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation

Colorado Springs, CO, April 15, 2005 – Sean Duffy, of Columbia University, and Leo Chau, of the University of Colorado at Boulder, will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for “Longest Distance Continuously Crawled” on June 10-11th, 2005, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This record attempt is a creative way to raise money for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (www.pedaids.org). The current record, 31.44miles, is held by Pete Mckinlay and John Murrie. Sean and Leo will crawl 33 miles.

The dynamic duo have already received donations of $10,000+ and hope to raise an additional $10,000 from the event. All of the money will go directly to the foundation. Their website, www.33milecrawl.com, fully documents the attempt and includes instructions for online donation. They have received a tremendous amount of feedback and support and hope to keep building attention on this exciting fund-raising attempt.
