Updated September 9, 2018: I posted a follow-up to this blog post at Salvation Army 2013 Bell Ringer Champions Follow-up.
I saw this posted on my Facebook page. The goal is 80 hours of bell ringing and he hopes to average $300/hour in donations. If he can achieve both goals, his efforts will raise $24,000 in donations.
Best wishes to Jim Brickston and the other five ringers trying to set a new record. If you have never stayed going for 3+ days, it is not easy to do for most people even allowing for the breaks they can accumulate during the bell ringing. In addition to the 6 bell ringers, they are required to have 2 people watching them for the entire time. It doesn’t have to be the same two people so here’s wishing the watchers well.
