LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer's "Give-a-Day" Week set a new world record, with more than 180,000 volunteers and acts of compassion.

That's 5,000 more than last year.

Mayor Fischer's office says some 1,200 volunteers cleaned up alleys and roadways in the Shelby Park, Smoketown, Shawnee and California neighborhoods, while more than 3,000 students walked for compassion as part of the international WE Day. 

This is the sixth year of the event, which ended on Sunday.
