A group of elementary school kids broke two records with Legos. They put together the fastest assembly of 10,000 Legos in three hours. They also set the record for the longest Lego chain. It was 947 meters. They did all of this to raise awareness for a student who was suffering from a rare and fatal disease. Very inspiring!
