The United Way of Anchorage, Alaska organized an event to bring awareness to homelessness in the city and they set a world record in the process.

A group of 300 came to beat the Guinness World record for the longest ‘fist bump’. The previous record was 251 and the 300 took the title.

It was monitored by Guinness officials and made official as the new world record. All ‘fist bumps’ had to be the real deal or it meant disqualification.

Mayor Ethan Berkowitz, Alaska First Lady Donna Walker and people who work with homeless youth were among those who joined in.
