HUG A TREE

First News - - CRAZY BUT TRUE -

THE first TreeHug­ging World Cham­pi­onships have taken place.

More than 12,000 peo­ple watched the event un­fold on so­cial me­dia. Par­tic­i­pants could up­load their own pic­tures of treehug­ging while the live event took place in Lapland, Fin­land.

Com­peti­tors bat­tled it out in three events: speed­hug­ging (hug­ging as many trees in 90 se­conds), ded­i­ca­tion, and freestyle, awarded to the most ded­i­cated and cre­ative hugs.

Ste­fa­nia from Italy was the over­all win­ner thanks to her “con­vinc­ingly car­ing” hugs.
