Gold Coast Sand Angel-Making World Record Attempt

If you’ve ever daydreamed about adding a world record attempt to your list of life achievements, this is your chance. 

Embracing our greatest asset, this Friday 22 November the Gold Coast is setting out to break the official world record for the “Most People Making Sand Angels Simultaneously”. 

Not only will it be a bloody cute spectacle and a feel-good way to kick off the end of the working week, you’ll be doing good with the event supporting the charity Drought Angels.

The current record stands at 1387 people and is held by Ludington in Michigan, USA. Yet the only way they’ll make history and knock this record off its perch is with help from the locals. That’s you guys! Gold Coasters are encouraged to lend a hand in the sand and show off their sand angel-making skills on Broadbeach's Kurrawa Beach.
 
Organisers We Are Gold Coast and Groundwater Country Music Festival have said proceeds raised on the day will go directly to Drought Angels. Participation for the world record is free, however they’re encouraging Gold Coasters to dig deep and donate to this worthy cause on the day of the event. Donations will help keep our Aussie farmers on their land, support their families and our rural communities during hardship.

So, if you’ve been feeling a little helpless when learning about the dire situation of those stricken by drought, now you can do your bit to make a difference.
