What a fabulous day we had on Saturday, April 14, 2012!


232 people worked to stomp their way into the Guinness World Record book and, help stomp on domestic violence at the AKF Break the Cycle Guinness World Record event. After two separate attempts, the high number of boards broken was 204!

Stay tuned for more information about final confirmation on the Guinness World Record and the final total for monies raised...

In the meantime, a great big THANK-YOU to all the people who gave up their time on Saturday to take part in this great event! Much fun was had by all and everybody looked fantastic in their custom “Breaker” T-Shirts. We’ll have some pictures and video posted soon.

Many thanks to our partners SAIT Recreation and Lite 959 (and the Roger’s Radio Group) for their incredible support.And of course, a special thank-you to Calgary Counselling Centre for the great work they are doing to help stomp on domestic violence and supporting us in our fundraising efforts.

Many thanks to our T-Shirt Sponsor Best Cap who did an incredible job designing and producing the Breaker T-Shirts. As well, a heartfelt thanks to Timbertown for their support in the purchase of custom milled breaking boards and supplies necessary for the breaking stands.

Last but not least, let’s not forget the assistance and support of the AKF Break the Cycle Guinness World Record event team of volunteers who made this terrific event happen. Their countless hours of time and unending support made this event the success it was.
