Little Pine Lake (WDAY TV) -- Hundreds of people on Little Pine Lake hit the water to beat a world record.

The Kinship of Perham was trying to reach a Guiness World Record for the number of people floating at once. They wanted one thousand floaters, but there would only have to be about 865 to beat the record.

Unfortunately for the Kinship , just more than 500 floaters showed up,and although the record wasn't beat, organizers say they are very happy with the turnout.

Each floater paid 10 dollars, which will all be donated to the Kinship.

Jill Shipman, Kingship Director, says, "the money all stays right here in Otter Tail County helping kids develop, build their self esteem, graduate from high school, hopefully be contributors to society."

Shipman says they will try again next year.
