MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- Several West Michigan school districts worked together Friday to break a world record.
The students and teachers wanted to to set the record for the most people eating Michigan apples at once.
The yearly event is called the Big Crunch, and it started in Montague.
On Friday, students at Oakridge High School did their part to help break the record. The apples were all donated by Michigan farmers.
Oakridge health teacher Heidi Reister says it's one way to help students make healthy snack choices.
"What I think is so cool is how appreciative the kids are over an apple," Reister said. "It is healthy, and a healthy message, and that is what we are trying to do."
Muskegon County set the record last year at 19,087 apples. It will take some time to determine if the students and staff on Friday broke their own record.
