Event at Kings Island breaks world record
MASON, Ohio (WKRC) -- A Cincinnati Reds player gave his help to a world record attempt Saturday, August 9 at Kings Island.
The park teamed up with Todd Frazier to try and break the record for most people putting on sunscreen simultaneously. The attempt was meant to help raise awareness and money for the fight against cancers affecting men, women and children. The initiative was part of the Kicks Cancer campaign for Melanoma Know More.
The current Guinness World Records was 1,822 people. It was achieved by Ann's Hope Foundation in Milwaukee, Wisconsin May 18, 2014.
Kings Island topped the record for the most people applying sunscreen at the same time with 2,148. Sunscreen was provided to all participants courtesy of Panama Jack.
Park visitors can contribute the campaign through August 24 by buying a soccer ball for $5 and kicking it into the park fountain for a chance to win a new 2015 Honda Fit! Net proceeds from the soccer ball sales go to The Dragonfly Foundation, Melanoma Know More and Pink Ribbon Girls.
