In a spectacle that had everyone shuffling their feet, a team of high schoolers from Connecticut attempted to pull off a wild feat by securing the Guinness World Record of the longest distance danced in a conga line.
Led by the fearless junior, Omar Galal, the Conga4All event took Greenwich High School by storm as they embarked on a conga line extravaganza, reports the Greenwich Free Press. Galal and his crew grooved their way through a mind-boggling 64 laps around the school’s Cardinal Stadium track. The previous record of 15.53 miles, set by a troupe in the Netherlands, had met its match!
Clocking in at nearly 16 miles, they not only secured them a spot in the record books, but also brought in a whopping $8,500 for the River House Adult Day Center. Talk about dancing for a cause!
As the news spreads like wildfire, the team’s achievement is now shimmying its way to the Guinness World Records for official recognition.
