Grand Blanc School Attempts to Break Video Game World Record
Here’s a unique way some students are trying to raise money for Relay for Life. Grand Blanc City School/Perry Center students are inviting people to come out on Saturday to the Grand Blanc football field to attempt to break a world record.
They are hoping over 850 people will show up to play their handheld video games for 10 minutes, to try to beat the Guiness Book of World Records. Right now, a town in Japan holds the title.
Everyone who comes out has to bring their video game and donate one dollar, which will go to the American Cancer Society. Show up on Saturday at 3pm on the football field to help break the record and donate to a great cause.
Rod and I had the chance to visit this class that came up with this idea and they are a great group of kids. They were also one of the classrooms picked for our Kids That Care campaign. In addition to coming up with this unique fundraiser, they have been raising salmon that they plan to release in the river next week. They are a very creative and caring group.
So if you love video games, show your support and have some fun on Saturday at 3pm on the Grand Blanc football field.
