Crime Prevention Officer Michelle Alexander and School Resource Officers Joe Woloszyn and Josh Kennon helped break a world record on Thursday, July 23 at the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum.
Along with over 1,200 REC-Pac campers, officers are highlighting the bullying issue by striving to break into the Guinness Book of World Records. The group stood in front of the museum and formed a shape of a heart with their hands for two minutes. Previously, the record holder in this category stood at 554 kids. If approved, the campers and all in attendance will make the 2016 book.
The campers were assisted by 42 volunteer stewards from FCPD, Fairfax County Schools, Fairfax County Fire & Rescue along with local residents.
REC-Pac, which stands for Pretty Awesome Children is operated by the Fairfax County Park Authority and is a summer program for Fairfax County children. The campers range from 1st graders to rising 7th graders. You can find more information on their summer program at http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/rec-pac/.
