I had the honor of being the MC as students at a Stillwater Junior High School spent the day trying to break a record, and help a community half a world away. They partnered up with local non-profit H2O For Life, and carried water on their heads to help with a water crisis in South Sudan.
I was told the unofficial count was 1,145.
They'll send in a final packet to Guinness, and expect to get "official word" by late summer.
About 40 schools in the Twin Cities partner with H2O For Life.
