Martin Mienczakowski is on a year of adventure after surviving a brain injury.
On 31st October 2015 Martin will be attempting to beat the world record for furthest distance on a space hopper in 24 hours. The record attempt is the latest chapter in a series of challenges since his brain injury in 2009. So far this has led him to represent England, complete a wilderness trek, cycle coast to coast and much more!

Through his website http://www.didiever.co.uk Martinis trying to share a philosophy he has developed (stop making excuses, make things happen instead!) with the world and raise awareness of the impact that brain injuries can have (psychological as well as physical). The current record stands at 8km, Martin anticipates that this will take 6 – 8 hours to beat. During the attempt he will be raising money for the Stroke Association, a cause close to his heart, not just because of his own experience, but also for others in his family who have been affected by stroke.
Martin will be using http://www.space-hopper.co.uk Black Retro Space Hoppers on his attempt on Halloween.
