Bounce To A Cure and The Today Show: A Second World Record?

Mark your calendars for the November 18th, 2010 airing of the Today show.  Why? Because James Roumeliotis, Founder of Bounce To A Cure, is attempting to add his second world record to the Guinness Book of World Records.

A second world record you say?

In case you’re not “in the know,” let us refresh your memory. Our BTAC founder set the Guinness Book of World Records in 2007 for most consecutive pogo bounces.  In under 20 hours he worked that pogo stick for an astonishing 186,152 bounces (and raised a healthy sum of money for the Scleroderma Foundation in doing so). Well, friend, he’s at it again.

What To Expect

James is scheduled to be on the Today show the morning of November 18th, 2010.  He will be attempting his second world record; only this time he’ll be going for the most pogo bounces in one minute. Brian Reinert, of Bender Helper Impact, contacted James [presumably] after catching wind of the latest release of the Guinness World Record book.  The version published earlier this year is dated 2011 and you’ll find James on page 110 if you want to see for yourself.

So please watch the Today show on Thursday,  November 18th, 2010 to see BTAC bounce its way into the record books.  Although the event has been planned on short notice it’s the intent of BTAC to share its captive audience with the Scleroderma Foundation again.
