This Summer, I will attempt to break a Guinness World Record for the highest static trapeze act...suspended from a hot air balloon.

Performance Child Welfare Youth

Last year we bought you the highest aerial hoop routine suspended from a paraglider over Queenstown. This Summer, we thought we would go a little bit (a lot) higher and a little bit more official.

The plan is to break the current world record for the highest static trapeze act which is currently 2171 feet. The attempt will take place suspended below a hot air balloon at a height of, weather permitting, 5000 feet.

Huge thanks to the sponsors:

- MaD Strength & Conditioning (

- Ballooning Canterbury (

Well there's nothing like a bit of pressure to get the job done (?!). This is a rather big mental, physical and organisational challenge for me that I have wanted to pull together for a number of years. I would happily attempt this on the quiet, but I do believe in using any platform you have, to do good. So here I am, telling you all what I am up to so that 1) we can raise some awareness and funds for a well deserving charity and 2) so I don't pull out! :)

My chosen charity for this event is Big Brothers Big Sisters NZ because supporting youth is a necessary ingredient for a healthy society.

Each year, over 900 young people of New Zealand’s most vulnerable children and young people aged between 6 and 18 years benefit from the support of a carefully screened and trained Big Brother or Big Sister mentor. There is a very real need for BBBS to expand their organisation in order to provide mentors for the hundreds of children on our waiting lists.

As well as raising money for BBBS NZ, I hope to take some BBBS mentors and their mentees up in a second hot air balloon to be where the action is.

All funds raised go to:

“We know you'll be amazing!”
“This sounds awesome!!”
“This is amazing! Good luck Anna.”
“You're amazing Anna! What a great cause.”
“Happy trails”
“Good luck Anna xoxo”
