During our Guinness World Record Attempt we like to raise awareness for the selfless job our 10.000 volunteers at the Icelandic Search and rescue team do year round by raising funds for their organization.
ICE-SAR is a a nonprofit, noncommercial, volunteer-based organization that specializes in search and rescue services on land and at sea around the coast of Iceland.
Its member organizations consist of 99 rescue units, 70 accident prevention and women’s divisions and 50 youth sections. Altogether the association has about 10,000 volunteer members and are present in most towns in Iceland.
Although the rescue teams function as a public service, they are only supported by donation.
Our first step towards that was to go to their main office in Reykjavík, meet their PR Manager and present the idea to them. He seemed very happy to see us, he had heard about our previous World Record and was excited to hear all about our next record attempt. He thanked us for wanting to support ICE-SAR and gave us a „thumbs up“ – and asked to be kept in the loop with our next steps.
We are thrilled to be able to support such a great organization with the #ScootingRecord attempt!
