BRUNSWICK, Ohio- A color that stands for more than school pride for the community of Brunswick.

Following the tragic car accident that claimed 4 teens back in 2012 and the deaths of other students, residents are calling on people across Northeast Ohio in an act of charity and compassion.

This weekend, the city of Brunswick wants everyone to put on their best blue and help them set a record for the longest blue shirt line in the world.

They are calling it, 'Project Blue Line.'

Rosevine Azap told FOX 8 News, "blue is a sense of pride in our community."

Saturday, Brunswick businesses will offer promotional deals to shoppers. Sunday, is the big event. The goal is to have 5,000 people in blue shirts lined up by 4:15 p.m. along State Route 303.

They are asking everyone to be signed in by 3:30 p.m. Sunday at City Hall.

The city of Brunswick, St.Ambrose Church, The Blue Pride Foundation and 'The One Thing' group are organizing the event.

Organizers say its not only about the record, but more importantly they hope to raise $40 thousand for the Blue Pride Foundation and Make a Wish foundation.

The event is free to the public. Donations are welcomed.
