Regents Bank Vice President Jeff Wilber is a Guinness World Record Holder!
Regents Bank Vice President Jeff Wilber recently received his certificate of authentication (see it below) that he is indeed part of a group that holds a place in history with Guinness World Records.
This past February Jeff joined with other members of his Rotary Club and participated in an event called Rotary Global Swimarathon. The purpose of the event it is to eradicate polio, which unfortunately is still prevalent in many countries today.
As posted on the Rotary Club of La Jolla Sunrise website, “A total of 88 Rotary Clubs worldwide, on 6 continents, in 15 time zones, and in 23 countries supported 4,546 swimmers who participated in this signature event. Locally, 84 swimmers, 1 dog, and 20+ teens from The Arch Academy braved the cold, dark Pacific Ocean to swim the course for polio and then enjoyed post swim hot towels, muffins, donuts plus coffee and hot coco. At the end of the swim, everyone adjourned to Papalulu’s restaurant.”
In order to be in the water with the rest of the world, Jeff braved the cold waters of the Pacific at 4 am PST. The event raised $104,622 by swimmers across the globe for the End Polio Now (Polio Plus) campaign.
We congratulate Jeff and thank him for doing his part to help such a worthwhile cause. For more information you can go to the Rotary Global Swimarathon website at www.rotaryglobalswimarathon.org.
