Grace College to Attempt World’s Largest Knockout Game
As a fundraiser for Grace College senior Jeremy Mohr, who was paralyzed after an accident last fall, five Grace College students have undertaken a record-breaking task: organize and host the world’s largest game of Knockout.
The students aim to bring more than 360 student, faculty, alumni, and community participants to the Orthopaedic Capital Center on Friday, April 8 in attempt to break the current Guinness World Record. The event, which will be held at 8pm, will cost $1 for admission and participation. Sophomore Zane Gard, who has taken on Mohr’s role as Grace’s student intramural director and serves as chairperson for this event, says 100 percent of the money raised through the game will go to Jeremy Mohr to help cover medical costs and personal care. Gard says he and his co-event coordinators are able to donate all of the proceeds to Mohr’s care because almost all of the event costs are covered through donations.
Grace welcomes the local community to participate in a successful record-breaking by coming to the OCC at 8pm on April 8 to play, watch, donate, or volunteer. Sign-ups are not necessary to play, but those who are interested in volunteering or have questions about the event should email Gard at email@example.com. For those who do not wish to participate but would like to help, Gard says they will be accepting donations toward Mohr’s care.
