Garwood's Lincoln School Blows Bubbles for Autism, Tries to Break World Record

Students and teachers joined 37,000 others across the globe to raise awareness and beat the Guinness World Record.

Lincoln School in Garwood participated in an event designed to "burst the bubble" on a world record and to help raise awareness and money for autism research last week. More than 250 students and staff members blew bubbles to raise awareness of autism as part of an event to break a Guinness World Record for most people simultaneously blowing bubbles within one minute.

"Blow Bubbles 4 Autism," an event created by South Jersey non-profit Faces 4 Autism, coordinated approximately 37,000 students and adult-supporters from across the country and as far away as Israel, South Africa and Australia to simultaneously blow bubbles.

The exact total from the event is still being calculated, but it looks like this may be a new record. According to the Guinness World Records website, the most people blowing bubbles simultaneously was 34,529 at 198 venues around the UK in 2007.

"Blow Bubbles 4 Autism" began in 2004. The organization says that each bubble symbolizes the support and compassion of those who educate, befriend and love people with autism.
