A southwestern Ohio amusement park says it has set another record in efforts to help in the fight against cancer.

Kings Island in Mason says 2,148 people participating Saturday broke the record for the most people applying sunscreen at the same time. 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.

Guinness World Records says the current record of 1,822 people applying sunscreen at the same time was achieved by Ann's Hope Foundation in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in May.

Last week, the park laid claim to a mass head-shaving record as part of its Kicks Cancer campaign.

The records claims are subject to certification by Guinness World Records.

Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

Use sunscreen! My generation grew up in an age when getting burned was just part of summer. Now like many of my peers I suffer from melanoma.
