In August 2010, Montreal yoga instructor Yasmin Fudakowska-Gow completed 32 straight hours of yoga, breaking the Guinness world record for longest yoga marathon. But her incredible feat wasn’t simply for the satisfaction of holding a Guinness record — she took on her challenge as a Dare for the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s A Dare to Remember campaign. And what a Dare it was: as of World Aids Day (December 1st), Yasmin had raised over $10,800 for African community organizations turning the tide of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Yasmin recently spoke with Radio Canada International’s The Link about her Dare and the Foundation’s work. You can listen to her interview with host Mark Montgomery by clicking here.
