A Special Day for those odd/unused socks loitering in the back of your sock drawer or lurking in the laundry basket. The Rotary Club of Wahroonga wants to unite all these lost ‘soles’ and create a community event for families, schools and businesses in the area.

What:
A 10,000 metre line of connected socks setting a new World Record achieved by connecting over 40,000 socks.
 
Why:
To bring Communities together and raise over $60,000 to be invested in joint community/Rotary projects and build healthier communities.
 
When:
Saturday 10th October 2020International Mental Health Day.
 
Where:
450 Mona Vale Road, St Ives
 
 
Cost:
A $2 donation is needed for each sock to be included in the World Record Attempt.
How:
We need all your odd/unused socks! We want you and your organisation/team/office/school/family to gather all your odd/unused socks together (with a $2 donation per sock). From here you need to decide if you have enough socks to build a 50 metre chain. We have estimated you need about 200 socks to build a 50 metre Socktastic Sock-Chain for our World Record Attempt.
  • If you think you will have enough socks for a 50 metre Socktastic Sock-Chain, register here, we will then call you and talk through the next steps. 
  • If you don't think you will  have enough socks to build a Socktastic 50 metre chain, then register here and drop your socks and $2 donation per sock at our sock-drop location the PCYC in Waitara (free parking available).
  • If you don't have enough socks but you want to take part then consider 'adopt-a-sock' option, more information here.
The first 200 x 50 metre Socktastic Sock-Chains will receive an item of commemorative memorabilia.
 
Please note you will not receive your 'how-to pack' with step-by-step instructions until you have registered and paid your deposit. At the end of the day - when everyone has gone home and hopefully, we have a community inspired World Record under our belt, the socks will continue on their recycling journey. We are always looking for clever ways to do this so please get in touch if have any ideas. At this stage they will be heading to power our electricity!
 

All net proceeds from the day will go to The Rotary Club of Wahroonga's Community Projects as well as the Rotary Foundation, both of which have a number of projects with a focus on Mental Health.
