Ohio park claims another record for cancer support

MASON, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio amusement park has staked its claim to another record in its effort to support the fight against cancer.

Kings Island says 1,821 people on Saturday applied lipstick at the same time. Guinness World Records lists the record as 1,384 by Avon Romania set in March this year.

The event Saturday was meant to raise awareness and money for Pink Ribbon Girls, who provide personalized support for young women and families facing breast cancer.

In earlier events in its Kicks Cancer campaign, Kings Island said it topped records for people applying sunscreen and for mass head-shaving.

The park says more than $110,000 has been raised at the park in the northern Cincinnati suburb of Mason to fight cancer since July 25.

The records claims are subject to Guinness certification.
