Day One Down & Four Remain For World Record!

We are just past  the 24 hour mark of our World Record Bell Ringing contest and four bell ringers are still ringing strong!

This contest raises awareness for The Salvation Army’s 123rd annual Red Kettle Campaign while posing an exciting opportunity to set a new world record.

Contestant Andre Thompson of Tyler. TX is still up and going outside in front of Walgreens. He’s very motivated and physically still feels great!

Sprits are looking good so far, “I love this! My body is really holding up well”, says contestant Andre Thompson of Tyler, TX.  “I think the record is mine. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! In the end it’s mind over matter!”

Lt. Rob Lawler in Helena, MT is still smiling while ringing in NINE degree whether. Brr!

  1. This is my third year ringing in the Oak Brook Terrace, Illinois area and if I would have known about this, I would have been involved. I will say this, it is easier in Texas and Cal. than Chicago. I still say bless them for the effort
