Students from Glen Allen High School will attempt to set the Guinness Book of World Records record for the most simultaneous high-fives on Saturday, May 12 at 1 p.m.

Prior to the attempt, a yard sale will be held from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Individuals can purchase space for $10. Tables will not be provided. There will also be entertainment, a Jaguar car display and activities and games such as a football toss, cornhole, prize wheel, home run derby and more.

Admission to the yard sale is free. The cost to participate in the world record attempt is a $5 donation to the CATS Foundation. A $15 “Gimme 5” ticket will include a donation, as well as a meal from Nader’s and five activity tickets. The CATS Foundation is a collaborative organization made up of the Hermitage Panthers, Glen Allen Jaguars and Tucker Tigers.
