A New York state church has broken a Guinness World Record for playing hopscotch.
The Asbury First United Methodist Church said more than 700 people played simultaneous games of hopscotch during Thursday night’s Block Part. This beats the previous Guinness record of 650 people.
Senior Minister Stephen Cady said that “we were trying to figure out as a church what could we do to bring people together and this was an idea someone sat around the table and said what about hopscotch.”
Cady said the church wanted to bring people to together at a divisive time for the country.
