BGSU students set sights on breaking Guinness record

The Bowling Green State University Homecoming Student Steering Committee is attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the longest line of toothpaste tubes.

The current record, set in China in December 2016, is 3,018 tubes, or 3.22 miles.

The committee hopes to collect at least 3,019 standard (3 oz.) tubes of toothpaste by Oct. 5. If this goal is reached, the world record attempt will be recorded on the field in Doyt Perry Stadium following the Homecoming football game Oct. 15.

After the official attempt, the toothpaste will be donated to America’s ToothFairy: The National Children’s Oral Health Foundation. As a resource provider, the organization works to increase access to oral health care by supporting nonprofit clinics and community partners delivering education, prevention and treatment services for underserved children.

Donations can be dropped off at the Office of Campus Activities, 401 Bowen-Thompson Student Union.
