On May 5th, 2011, over 2,500 students from two dozen schools took part in 'Rachel's Rally' in north Texas. The event was in affiliation with the Rachel's Challenge organization; a non-profit aimed at encouraging students to be kind and compassionate.

The students paraded through the stadium with one of the longest paper kindness chains to date. On each link, an act of kindness was listed, providing a visible representation of all the good deeds the 2,500 students had completed in their goal to spread kindness and compassion at their schools.
