Who: EVERYONE! Our event is all about inclusion, regardless of ability or disability. We want to expand the involvement beyond just St. Francis, people within the community are invited to participate. Bernie the St. Bernard will be joining us.
What: We are setting a Guinness World Record for the largest number of people doing a Hip-Hop dance, using the song “Bernie Lean”. We will need 1,000 people to help us break this world record! Brandon Collofello, Kathleen Hayes, Allison Rhodes, and Chelsea Rimington have originated this event as a melding of an aspiring tradition of obtaining a Guinness World Record every year and the USF Saints Spreading Respects’ community involvement with Special Recreation agencies. From the merging of these two elements, we have formulated the basis of our event on respect for all facets of diversity as well as an emphasis on serving the local and international community. Our aim for this event is to encompass the Student Government Association and Saints Spreading Respect student organization in order to include a diverse group of student leaders and involvement.
