Pitt’s Basketball Fan Fest and Maggie Dixon Heart Health Fair joined forces last Saturday, September 25, in attempts to break a Guinness World Record for the most blood pressure screenings taken in a period of eight hours.

The event lasted from 9 am to 3 pm, and the final count was 1,423 screenings, 654 short of breaking the record of 2,076.
