will be used to raise funds for the Cure
Kids medical research charity, and so far he has raised
about $NZ5000 ($A4,000), with an "ambitious" target of $NZ30,000
"I'm feeling pretty sore but not from anything
you'd normally get from bungee, just from hitting the water,"
Heard's love of bungy jumping began five years
ago and hasn't dimmed.
"Once you get over the fear it's really, really
enjoyable - it's quite a free feeling."
Heard wasnít alone in his attempt Ė he was joined
by Rodney Hide, TV3ís Kate Rodger and Mike Hall, plus The
Rockís Tracey Donaldson who all took a Bungy jump in support
of Heardís attempt.
The previous record for the most bungy jumps
in 24 hours was held by South African Bill Boshoff who performed
101 bungy jumps in 14 hours and 23 minutes at Bloukrans River
Bridge, South Africa, on May 10, 2002.
