Members of the More than Aware breast cancer support group and their allies were trying to break a Guinness World Record for the most people having breakfast in bed. The menu included noodles, croissants and fruit, according to Shanghaiist.com.

The previous record was set by Priceline and Women's Health (Australia) in 2012. They hosted 289 people at that breakfast at Sydney's Martin Place. There were 85 queen-size beds, with two to four people in each bed.

Each person had to be fed "two breakfast food items plus a beverage."

The Guinness World Records staff works with nonprofits to help raise awareness of their issues through world-record stunts.
