Aussie strongman Troy Conley-Magnusson has done it – pushed a 12-tonne Freightliner Cascadia for a back-breaking 100 feet along Little Stanley Street in South Bank, Brisbane.
A massive crowd turned out to see the televised Guinness World Record shove (pending official certification), a fundraiser for Little Wings, Ronald McDonald House and Sydney Children’s Hospital.
Conley-Magnusson hopes to reach a target of $30,000 and you can still donate to the cause by clicking here.
Last November, Conley-Magnusson was attempting to break the Guinness World Record for Most Cars pulled by an Individual with 16 Hyundai’s, weighing over 25 tonnes. Unfortunately, he came up short of the record by five metres due to a misplaced foot on one of the car’s brakes!
To keep momentum going and keep driving the fundraising, Conley-Magnusson was looking for another challenge, and didn’t have to look far for motivation.
“It’s all about helping kids that have been seriously injured or diagnosed with critical illnesses like cancer and leukemia,” he said.
“Unfortunately, that is what happened with young Ava, at just two years old she was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukemia and subsequently lost over 98% of her bone marrow.
“Thankfully, now five years on, she’s ok and in remission, largely thanks to the support Little Wings, Ronald McDonald House and Sydney Children’s Hospital offer.”
