A group of Taree TAFE students will be attempting to do just that during this weekend’s Relay For Life event at the Manning Aquatic Leisure Centre.

The Light it Up TAFE team will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the longest links in a glow stick chain.

The record is currently held by a UK team, and the group of 10 Tourism and Event Studies students hope to beat the mark on Saturday evening.

To break the record which currently stands at 4500, the students are planning on linking 5000 glow sticks at tomorrow’s Manning Valley (Taree) 2014 Relay for Life event.

Due to the guidelines set by Guinness World Records and the logistics involved in the attempt, only the team of students can be involved in the linking of the chain, however the attempt will be recorded as a Relay for Life TAFE team record if successful.

The students’ teacher Wendy Gillies has been helping them prepare for their world record attempt, and said it would be a formidable challenge for the Light it Up TAFE team.

“We’re under strict guidelines by the Guinness World Records in that we have to film the whole process with a static camera with no breaks,” she said.

“It will be a tedious process and logistically it’s going to be difficult.

“We expect it to take two and a half to three hours, but they only glow for a maximum of four hours and they have to be bright to take the record, so we’re under the pump so to speak.

“We haven’t practised it before but over a few months we’ve planned whose role is what, like a production line.”

Mrs Gillies said the students had been planning their participation in Relay for Life for some months now, fitting preparation into their busy schedules.

“I am very proud of this group, as in preparing for this event they have attended Relay for Life meetings, undertaken their school and TAFE studies, worked in part time jobs all whilst studying for preliminary and HSC exams.”

For team members Brad Morris and Katie Hall, taking part in the world record attempt and Relay for Life is of great personal significance.

Katie’s father and grandmother both passed away in 2009 after being diagnosed with cancer in 2007.

She said taking part in this weekend’s Relay for Life meant the world to her.

“It’s close to my heart and very touching to be a part of,” she said.

Brad has also lost loved ones to cancer, giving him an extra purpose to participate.

“My grandmother passed away from cancer in 2001, and my good friend passed away this week, so Relay for Life is very relevant for me,” he said.

“It will be chance to remember both and it will be good to relay for them as well.”

Brad said Relay for Life would be the perfect stage to attempt the world record.

“Our theme is ‘light it up’ and we’re doing that by bringing some light and colour to the event, especially when most of the event is in the dark,” he said.

“The glow sticks are shaped in circles and we’ll be joining them together, a bit like a daisy chain.

“And we hope to go around the entire track with them linking.”

As well as attempting a world record, the Light it Up Taree team will also be selling glow sticks and operating a candy bar from their team tent to raise money during Relay for Life.

In the lead up to the Relay for Life, the students have not only held fundraising events at their respective schools, the most recent a hugely successful teachers ice bucket challenge at Taree High, but have also undertaken all of the liaison with Guinness World Records UK.

The Manning Valley (Taree) Relay for Life gets underway tomorrow with a Survivors and Carers Walk from 2.20pm at the Manning Aquatic Leisure Centre.
