INC to hold walk vs. poverty for Guinness record attempt

  • Iglesia Ni Cristo will be attempting to beat its own feat at the Guinness World Records by holding a walkathon in May to fight poverty
  • It will be a simultaneous event to be held in 358 sites in 44 countries
  • Their previous similar event was held in 2014 for the victims of the Super typhoon Yolanda

The international religious organization Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) will be attempting to set a Guiness record by holding its second record-breaking simultaneous walkathon in May to fight poverty.

INC will hold its Second Worldwide Walk (SWW) early morning on May 6, 2018, at the iconic Roxas Boulevard in a bid to beat its own feat at the Guinness World Records.

The event will be a simultaneous event, to be held in 44 countries, 358 sites, 33 territories and 18 time zones.

Proceeds of the event will be used by the religious organization for its food and medical-assistance programs for poor communities.

The First Worldwide Walk (FWW) was held in 2014 for the victims of the Super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) with 519,221 participants from 16 countries in a single day.

As it continues to support self-sustaining resettlement communities in the Philippines, INC’s programs aim to strengthen the bond between the congregations of the Church Of Christ and the communities they serve.
