MASON, OH (FOX19) -
Kings Island attempted to set a Guinness World Record on Friday for most heads shaved simultaneously as part of the new Kicks Cancer campaign and raise awareness for The Dragonfly Foundation.

More than 200 people are getting their head shaved simultaneously for the cause, including FOX19's very own Frank Marzullo.

The world-record attempt consisted of more than 200 stylists from 26 Great Clips salons located in Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Cleveland, Lima and Toledo.

The current world record is 182 and was achieved by Cancer Council ACT - Canberra Relay for Life at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra, Australia on March 29, 2014.

Kicks Cancer campaign is a new park initiative focused on raising awareness and funds for research, treatment and care in the fight against cancers affecting men, women and children.

Now through Aug. 24, Kings Island visitors can make an impact in the caring and cure of cancer by purchasing a soccer ball for $5 and kicking it into the park's fountain on International Street for a chance to win a 2015 Honda Fit, courtesy of Performance Kings Honda.

Net proceeds from soccer ball sales benefit The Dragonfly Foundation, Melanoma Know More and Pink Ribbon Girls.

The Dragonfly Foundation's mission is to bring comfort and joy to kids and young adults up to age 30 who undergo treatment for cancer at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. They provide distractions and support that ease the pain and fear these young patients and their families experience on a daily basis.
