NHS Hosts Possibly Record Breaking Knockout Game to Raise Awareness

Mason High School’s National Honor Society will organize an attempt to break a Guinness World Record for the largest game of basketball knockout to raise money and awareness for The Dragonfly Foundation and a Mason High School freshman, Aidan Glass, who was diagnosed with brain cancer last year.

  All event profits will go through The Dragonfly Foundation to Aidan and his family.

What:  In order to raise money and awareness for Aidan and his family, the MHS National Honor Society is attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the largest game of knockout.  A record attempt in May 2013 from Grove City College was for 656 participants. The first 500 people to sign up for the event will receive a t-shirt. In addition to National Honor Society’s attempt to break the world record, the organization plans to have food and activities booths, and performances from the Mason High School band, the Dance Team, Comet Skippers and small student music groups.

 

When: Saturday, October 19th at 1:00 PM

(the game is predicted to last 3-3.5 hours)
