Last year we blogged about Yasmin Fudakowska-Gow, the Montreal-based yoga instructor who broke the Guinness world yoga-marathon record as her Dare for the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s A Dare to Remember campaign. Today we have another world-record-level Dare to tell you about — except this one involves far less graceful posing, and far more throwing foam balls at people.

Starting this Friday, January 7th at 7 PM, Helder Brum and 19 other self-described “dodgeball maniacs” will take to the court for a 36-hour world-record dodgeball game in support of the Stephen Lewis Foundation! The team has already raised $4000 for African community AIDS organizations, and hopes to raise at least $2000 more.
