Salvation Army Bell Ringers Attempt To Break World Record

Last updated on Friday, December 16, 2011

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Two Indianapolis bell ringers for the Salvation Army are attempting to set a world record for continuous ringing of a hand bell by a single person.

B.G. Kahuna and Caleb Stokes are among a group of several people around the country who are trying to break the record in order to raise awareness about the nonprofit's red kettle holiday campaign.

The previous record was set last year by Kyle Smith, a Salvation Army captain from Spokane, Wash., who rang a bell for 36 hours with no food or sleep.

The bell ringers must stand the entire time and are not allowed to eat. They can only drink beverages such as water, juice or Gatorade, and can only use the bathroom once every four hours, according to the Salvation Army.
