The Guinness Book of Records has accepted an application from a Hong Kong university student, Lorencio Mateo, who visited 801 7-Eleven stores, in 60 days, for Crossroads.

Lorencio battled all forms of public transportation for his marathon and tracked it on a self-made website, http://www.lorencio.us/, featuring photos of himself at each 7-Eleven.

Friends supported his adventure, reading his entries and viewing his photos along the way.  His original plan was to donate HK$10 for every 7-Eleven he visited. As word spread, though, others gave financially as well, bringing the sum to $8,000.

The 7-Eleven retail chain recognised his efforts with a donated Octopus card bearing the 7-Eleven logo.

Crossroads stands in awe at Lorencio’s extraordinary commitment and stunning originality.
