Wowww! David Parsons plans to break Guinness World Record by trying 10,000 hugs in a day!
David Parsons, of Glendora, was inspired by his friend Sharon Perkins, who died of cancer, to raise money for Grants Wishes, a nonprofit that helps children battling cancer.

When Perkins was 24 years old, she passed away when her cancer relapsed.
Parsons stood in front of the ESPN Zone at LA Live in downtown Los Angeles Monday with over 50 hug-recruiting volunteers.
The current world record is 8,709 hugs in 24 hours, achieved by Jonathan Sacks at the Bonnaroo music festival in 2010 to raise money for flood victims in Nashville.
