Wake Nation Cincinnati tries for Guinness world record

A Wake Nation Cincinnati team of wake boarders will be setting a new world record for most distance traveled on a wakeboard within 24hours...and it's a for a good cause.

The 24-hour world record attempt will begin Friday, June 25, and end on Saturday, June 26, and is officially sanctioned by Guinness World Record, the ultimate authority on record-breaking achievement.

The public is invited to join in the fun, including riding on the lake with the wakeboarding record-setters, photo and autograph sessions, wakeboarding clinics, and more.

Pledge proceeds from the world-record attempt will be donated to Medlend, a non-profit organization that provides medical missions to impoverished countries around the globe in an attempt to save and improve the lives of their citizens.

Wake Nation Cincinnati will operate daily through October.
