Are you all ready for an EPIC event? On February 2, 2011 Jonny Imerman created a world record for “Most Hugs Against Cancer” to raise awareness for the young cancer population with 11 hugs.

For those of you who are not aware of Break Cancer, it’s a campaign that brings the LIVESTRONG Young Adult Alliance together with Universal Record Data Base (URDB). It’s a great organization that raises cancer awareness through world records.

Little did we know, our friends at LIVESTRONG decided to start a friendly competition and broke our record with 30 hugs. Here at Imerman Angels, we LOVE to fight back for a good cause! In order to do so, we decided to do something BIGGER! How big you ask? Well, think a bear costume, 40+ supporters, and a great staff team wearing their Imerman Angels shirts on Michigan Ave, the Chicago hot spot.

On Wednesday, February 23rd from 12pm-1:30pm we will be giving hugs in Pioneer Court on Michigan Ave to those who want to help raise awareness for cancer support and break a record against cancer! You get bonus points for creative hugging style and costuming!

Check out the official site for more information and the original videos that sparked the challenge:
