Guinness World Record Confirmed to Keep the Flame Alive for Perth

It’s official! Perth has made its way into the record books for the world’s Longest Awareness Ribbon! Finally confirmed this week, the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF) were elated when they received the news that they are now Guinness World Record holders.

Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation worked with schools from across WA, along with families and members of the community to sign segments of yellow ribbon, all of which were then sewn together to reach the world record-breaking length.

Kokoda Trek

kokoda-cancer-fund-raiseAndrea and Kate had the privilege of meeting an amazing group of people who walked the Kokoda Trek in April. This group were inspired by 9 year old Shona Heard, from Pearsall, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) in March 2013. Due to many health complications, Shona spent time in ICU and has had to learn to walk and eat again. Shona gave the group her favourite toy, LAMBEE, and he travelled close to 100km, stopping for various photo opportunities along the way.


Guinness Book of Records – Keep the Flame Alive

We need your help to achieve a Guinness Book of World Record for ‘The Longest Awareness Ribbon!’

Keep the Flame Alive 2014 is attempting a World Record for the Guinness Book of Records to help raise awareness for Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation.

We are putting 2,000 meters of yellow ribbon together in 15 and 5 metre increments to create the world’s longest awareness ribbon, the current record is 1,247metres.


Many Busy Fingers make light work

We have been honoured to have the ladies from the National Lifestyle Villages in Bridgewater volunteer for our Guinness Book of World Record Attempt of the Longest Awareness Ribbon. They are not only helping us cut up some of the ribbon to share out to the smaller schools that wish to participate, but they have the very delicate and arduous task of sewing over 200 pieces back together in the very short time frame.

These ladies have exceptional sewing skills and clearly the enthusiasm for completing their tasks at hand. Thanks ladies for getting our ribbons ready for the schools in just one day. We look forward to seeing the finished 2000 metre completed ribbon on the 19th of April 2014. Thanks also to our photographer Jan Isaac for snapping these great shots for us!

Costumes for our ladybird dancers have arrived!

Auditions are happening soon for the 150 spots as our special Ladybird dancers. Many young kids will have the privilege of not only dancing especially for Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research but they will be bringing in our Lord Mayor and other guest Dancers for PCC and Piazza locations on our dance event day.

Open auditions will be held on Sunday 23 February in two locations, north and south of the river. They will be held at 10am at Beverley Margaret School of Dance on Dixon Road in Rockingham and 3pm at Esteem Dance Studio in Wangara. They are open auditions and the cost will be $25 for the successful children as they will receive a ladybird costume they can keep along with a ribbon for their dance performance.
