A South Shore community cartwheeled “Head Over Heels” into the Guinness Book of World Records.
Last week, 7News reported on the event hosted by Hope for Caroline Foundation.
On Saturday, their mission to honor 5-year-old Caroline Cronk became a success—tumbling their way into the record books.
The event was held in honor of Calle Cronk. The 5-year-old died from DIPG, a form of brain cancer, in 2013.
Her family created the Hope for Caroline Foundation, which raises money for research.
Friends at Calle’s Norwell gymnastics school, Head Over Heels, used to her love for gymnastics to come up with the record-breaking fundraising idea.
The group needed more than 690 people to perform a single cartwheel at the same time.
Last year, they came up just short. This year, the group was determined.
The group beat the record with 789 people.
The community vowed to flip head over heels for a family and little girl until there’s a cure.
