Rocket4TheCure – New World’s Record As Teens Launch Almost 4000 Rockets at Once

On October 26, 2014, High school students Sanzio Angili and Dylan Whitesel of Chesterfield, Virginia, raised $20,000 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation and broke a world record by launching 3973 model rockets at one time.

Supporters sponsored the event by donating $10 for each rocket, many of which were labeled with the name of a person being honored or remembered.

The two students, along with family and friends, assembled the rockets in the months before the launch.

The rockets were launched at the Chesterfield County Fairgrounds.
