2020 marks the 10th anniversary of MitoCanada! To celebrate this amazing milestone, we want to break 10 Guinness World records over the course of the year. Access our media toolkit here.

Below are the records we have targeted to date, but don’t stop there! We are confirming other record attempts to add to the list. If you have an idea for a Guinness World Record we could break, either sporting or non-sporting, send us an email at gwr@mitocanada.org. Don’t miss out (the FOMO is real)! Keep checking back to see new details on each of our attempts, including how to participate, fundraise and/or volunteer. See you at an event!
