The stunt was organized by gift retailer RedBalloon in association with children’s cancer charity Camp Quality in Wollongong, Australia. The company has conducted the challenge as part of their Christmas marketing campaign by inviting families and volunteers to dress up as Santa Claus and take part in the skydiving challenge.

“RedBalloon is all about creating moments and that’s something we definitely achieved today. We hope that each and every participant had fun and relished the opportunity to tick skydiving off their bucket list, and leaves today with another great Christmas memory,” said RedBalloon CEO Nick Baker.

Camp Quality Regional Manager- ACT/Illawarra Sonia Cameron said, “We loved being a part of this very special Guinness World Records event and it was great to see the smiles on the faces of our Camp Quality families.”

The event achieved major milestone by breaking the Guinness World Record and ultimately raised a total of $5000.

Interestingly, RedBalloon had hosted similar event last year, in which 320 Australians took part in what became the largest surfing lesson.

Looking ecstatic on achieving a new world record, Nick Baker said, “We broke the Guinness World Records title for the world’s largest surf lesson last year and had such a blast that we wanted to do something even more thrilling this year. It’s becoming a bit of a RedBalloon Christmas tradition.”
