Homeless awareness campaign breaks fist-bumping record
ANCHORAGE - Three hundred people in Alaska looking to raise awareness of homelessness are the new world record holders in fist-bumping.
KTVA-TV reports a Guinness World Records representative verified each of the fist bumps passed along a line of registered participants in a fenced-off area Saturday.
An improper fist bump could have meant disqualification.
The United Way of Anchorage organized the event. Mayor Ethan Berkowitz, Alaska First Lady Donna Walker and people who work with homeless youth were among those who joined in.
United Way of Anchorage president Michele Brown said fist-bumping was chosen to represent a strong affirmation of what the community stands for.
The previous record was set by a chain of 250 people.
