A team of students from Port Arthur Collegiate Institute attempted to lay down 79,200 coins in less than 2 hours, 42 minutes, and 29 seconds. A group in Warwickshire, Great Britain, presently holds the current record when on October 19, 2002 they set the record. The students missed beating the record by about 5 minutes and all gave a superb effort. The proceeds from this fundraiser were donated to the Foundation. Click for more information.
