Guinness World Record Attempt – Centennial
In 2013, Japan broke the record of the Most People Crab Walking at the Same Time with over 200 people. So naturally, with almost 14,000 students, we should have no problem crushing that record with RSA. The first 500 participants to sign up for free on MyNEU will get a T-Shirt!
