More than 3,000 people showed up at the Flag City BalloonFest Saturday night in an attempt to break a world record. Those in attendance snapped glowsticks for the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Hancock County’s “I Don’t Give a Snap About Stigma” campaign. The event aimed to raise awareness about mental health issues.
Unfortunately because of logistical problems, the record was not recorded. Jamie Franks coordinated the event. She told the Courier even though the record wasn’t officially set, it was still a huge success in raising awareness for NAMI.
The official record will remain 836. It was set in Los Angeles last November.
