JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- For the last three years Adventure Landing at Jacksonville Beach has hosted the Slide-a-thon to benefit the Ronald McDonald House.

To participate in this year's event, you may sign up for $10 and slide non-stop on the Undertow Water Slide in the park.

The last person standing wins.

Last year's winner slid for 33 hours and 44 minutes, which is a world record.

This year they hope to eclipse the 35 hour mark, which would set a whole new record.

"Sliding down only takes a minute, but the climb up the 62 stairs is a long walk," said Michelle Branham with Adventure Landing.

You can still sign up by visiting their website.

All the money goes to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Jacksonville and Gainesville. 

The last person standing gets a week long stay on Amelia Island. The event starts Friday at 6:00 p.m.
