Boy battling cancer high five’s his way into record books

ST. ANTHONY, Minn. (CNN) – A community in a Minnesota town comes together to help high five a little boy, battling cancer, into the record books.

Friends and strangers lined up to help Evan Thornton break a record for the most high-fives in a minute on Thursday.

Evan has been fighting a rare form of bone cancer for the past two years. He needed 212 to break the record. He got 221!

The next step is for Guinness to confirm the results.
