The Weyburn chapter of the Canadian Mental Health Association came up a little short in a record breaking attempt Wednesday afternoon. The goal was to have over 251 people participate in a human foosball game to break a world record and help break the stigma of mental health.
“We had a large group of students there for our guest speaker, however with some miscommunication a lot of them had to leave to catch buses and stuff like that,” said CMHA Weyburn Program Director Tasha Collins.
She adds they are planning to attempt to break the world record in the future.
“We are very excited we had a large audience for our message about being open and honest about mental health and seeking help if you need it, so we’re looking at it as a successful event,” recapped Collins.
Organizers haven’t picked a date yet for a new attempt, but they remain hopeful it will happen in the near future.
