November 13th is Guinness World Records Day and SS. Simon & Jude Cathedral School students plan to join hundreds of thousands of participants worldwide that day in what Guinness World Records terms the “World’s Largest Sport Stacking Event.”
During the course of Guinness World Records Day, sport stackers from all reaches of the world will be up stacking and down stacking various pyramids of cups in prescribed patterns at lighting speed. Sport stacking has been termed a “track meet for your hands at warp speed” that can improve reaction time, hand-eye coordination, concentration and focus.
Last year, more than 555,000 stackers worldwide participated to break the previous year’s STACK UP! record of 483,000. Sights are set on 600,000 stackers participating this year, and SS. Simon & Jude Cathedral School students are among them!
