Organizers look to set hopscotch record in Detroit

Published:

DETROIT (AP) -- Several groups in Detroit are looking to chalk up a new world record.

Organizers plan to create the world's largest hopscotch course in the city on Saturday.

They're inviting artists, community leaders, kids, families and businesses to come out and chalk up 22,720 feet worth of Detroit's sidewalks.

In all, that's more than 4 miles, which would be good for a new world record.

The idea is to bring people together in the city and encourage community, play, imagination and the creative use of design.

Organizer Ajooni Sethi tells WWJ-AM that Detroit is the perfect spot for this kind of effort, saying she doesn't "know in what other city this could have happened."
