Were thrilled to announce that Cam Wilson, a Gold Coast V8
ute driver and long-time friend of Huntingtons Queensland, has just
set a second Guinness World Record!
Cam achieved the record for Karting Greatest distance
travelled in 24 hours indoors (Team) in support of Huntingtons
Queensland and to raise awareness of Huntingtons Disease.
The Wilson family have been involved with Huntingtons Queensland
for the past decade, following the diagnosis of Murray, Cams
father, with the disease. Murray sadly lost his battle with the
disease last year, and Cam lives with the knowledge that he too
may have inherited the Huntingtons disease gene.
|Cam and his incredible team Dan Tuite, Tim Harris,
Daniel Goddard, Chris Hinton and Nathan Roach drove 774
kilometres in a 24 hour timeframe! That makes a whopping 4,868
laps with an average lap time of 17.72 seconds, and an average
three-second changeover between drivers.
Im very proud of the team for their efforts and Im
stoked to share this success with them on this occasion, Cam
Claiming a second world record is a bonus knowing the difference
the money we raise will make to the lives of Queensland families
coping with the detrimental effects of Huntingtons disease.
Through fundraising site everydayhero.com.au, Cam and his team
have raised more than $8,500. If you would like to contribute, you
