2014 Indiana Special Olympics Summer Games

Indiana Special Olympics Attempts To Break High Five Guinness World Record

by Staff | June 4th, 2014

Helping and supporting others in the community, especially those with disabilities, is a mission that’s important to our team of Indiana personal injury lawyers here at the law firm of Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin. That’s why we are asking the citizens of Terre Haute to come out in support of the 45th Annual Indiana Special Olympics Summer Games that are taking place in the city this weekend.

Attending this year’s opening ceremony will be particularly special, as those who attend and participate will be asked to join in on breaking the Guinness Book of World Records number for the longest high-five line ever created. According to an article from WTHITV 10 News, the high five line started as a tradition at the event a few years back and has grown to be a highlight in the introduction of participating athletes. This year, event organizers hope to make the line one for the memory and record books by having hundreds of people gather to show their support through a slap of hands.

Registration to participate in the record attempt begins at 6 p.m. this Friday evening at the Hulman Center. The first 500 people to sign up will receive a free gift as well.

Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin’s team of attorneys are hopeful the record breaking attempt is a success and would also like to wish all the athletes participating in the games this weekend the best of luck in their events!
