ALBERT LEA, Minn. (WCCO) – One Minnesota man isn’t spending the holidays shopping. Instead, he’s setting his sights on a world record.

Jim Brickson, captain of the Albert Lea Salvation Army, plans to be bell-ringing for no less than 80 consecutive hours.

During the world record attempt, Brickson will not be allowed to sit, eat or drink.

He will, however, be allowed one five-minute break every hour.

Brickson’s attempt will begin the morning of Tuesday, Dec. 3 at Northbridge Mall in Albert Lea.

The entire attempt will be streamed live.
