Pledging a war against the most common skin cancer Melanoma, the Kings Island in Mason on Saturday made a record for the most people applying sunscreen at the same time.
2,148 people participated in this rare awareness campaign for ‘Melanoma Know More’ to raise money for the treatment and well-being of cancer patients especially those suffering from Melanoma.
The records claim, however, is yet to be certified by the Guinness World Records.
All the 2,148 participants broke the record for the most people applying sunscreen at the same time in the fight against cancers, specifically melanoma.
The event is part of the park’s campaign to raise awareness and money in the fight against cancers, specifically melanoma, affecting men, women and children.
According to Guinness World Records, currently the record was held by Ann’s Hope Foundation in Milwaukee, Wis. where 1,822 people applied sunscreen at the same time on May 18 this year.
‘Melanoma Know More’ is a campaign that aims at curbing the menace of melanoma by awakening and educating people about the cancer and its symptoms and also supporting medical research.
The event ‘Kicks Cancer campaign’ is organized by Kings Island to create awareness among people and raise money for the fight against cancers affecting all genders, adults and children.
