Want to be part of an attempt to set the Guinness World Record for the number of people blowing a chewing gum bubble simultaneously?
After the first match of Kirkwood's last home volleyball game Wednesday, 1,440 pieces of gum donated by Bubble Yum will be handed out to the sections of world record participants in Johnson Hall. The Kirkwood Volleyball team plans to take part in the record attempt, as the normal three minute break between games has been extended to ten minutes. Volunteers will help assist and witness the participants as they attempt the record.
The world record attempt is part of Kirkwood's Dig Pink Campaign, an event to raise money for Breast Cancer research and awareness. Half of the door sales and all other fundraising go to Side-Out Foundation, a Virginia-based non-profit dedicated to cancer awareness, education and research. All fans are encouraged to wear pink in recognition of Dig Pink night as the #16 ranked Kirkwood Eagles take on Indian Hills Community College at 6:30 p.m.
The event marks the second annual Dig Pink night for Kirkwood Volleyball. The team effort in 2009 garnered around $3,000 in contributions.
