Ohio park says it set record on applying sunscreen

MASON, Ohio (AP) - 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.

Doesn't sunscreen cause cancer? Funny, people used to work outside all their lives and hardly anyone died of skin cancer until the chemical companies developed sunscreen.

I was at cedar point yesterday and saw a great show. Broadway.. However the lines were so long it took over three hours to get on any coaster for all the people buying the fast pass crap.
