Members of Iglesia ni Cristo who joined the church's charity walk on Saturday, February 15, set two new world records for having the most participants in a charity event and for holding the longest charity walk in multiple venues in different time zones.
 
"Thirteen time zones, 54 countries, 24 hours....Iglesia Ni Cristo reached a number and that number is 519, 521 participants," said Kirsty Bennett, Guinness World Records adjudicator, Sunday afternoon at the Diamond Hotel in Manila, where the announcement was made.

The previous record was set by Canada involving 231,635 participants who walked for a minimum of 1 kilometer (.62 miles) at 1,011 different locations around Canada on October 2, 2007.
 
Saturday's event also surpassed the record for the largest charity walk in a single venue with 175,000 participants beating the record set in Singapore in May 2000 with more than 77,000 individuals.
 
The walk for a cause of INC was staged in 135 sites across the globe in the USA, in Europe, in Australia/New Zealand and in Asia including the Philippines.
 
500,000 INC members from different countries participated in the event.
 
 
 
On Sunday, the Palace lauded Iglesia ni Cristo for setting two new world records and for helping relief efforts.
