Tomorrow morning, nearly 9,000 people will flock to the University of Minnesota Duluth’s athletic fields for an unprecedented event: breaking the Guinness world record for most snow angels made simultaneously, reports the Duluth News Tribune.

The Make Your Mark: Angels for a Cause event was organized by the Rotary of Duluth Club 25 and the Proctor High School DECA club who are involved with international service. Which is why, in addition to setting a new world record, the organizers hope to raise $28,000 for the clean water project—an initiative that provides clean water to the indigenous people of Ethiopia.

Currently North Dakotans hold the title, but UMD students are confident they can break the record with the help of others. Students, faculty, and staff from St. Scholastic and Lake Superior College will lend their wings, as will snow angels from an Edina Rotary Club.
