The first Wayout Stunts Promotional event was on Sunday 21 September 2003 when we sponsored a charity fun run in aid of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Appeal.
The mad event attracted 650 fun loving souls who dressed as gorillas and rampaged around a 7km course alongside the river Thames. The aim was to help the charity raise money to help save the Mountain Gorilla that is facing possible extinction
Here at Wayoutstunts we loved the idea of the event and were happy to sponsor one of those involved.
The participant in question was Paul, the creator of daredevil Evel Knievels only UK fan website, www.knievelkorner.co.uk . His attempt was all the more unusual as we hear it’s unheard of for him to be up early at the weekend and doing something worthwhile!
The course was completed in a not too impressive 1 hour 8 minutes - but were heartened to see Pauls inflatable banana and our logo screened across television sets in the London area on the early evening news.
