While attempting the record, the pair are also raising money for the Mental Health Foundation, a cause close to their hearts.

"I was in a really bad place struggling with a lot of mental health issues so it made a lot of sense to raise money for someone so special like the Mental Health Foundation," Gregor earlier told 1 NEWS.
