MASON, OH (FOX19) -

Kings Island on Saturday topped the record for most people applying sunscreen at the same time with 2,148. The event was part of the park's effort to raise awareness and money in the fight against cancers affecting men, woman and children. 

The Guinness World Record book currently shows the record as 1,822 people. That was achieved by the Ann's Hope Foundation in Milwaukee, Wis. on May 18 of this year.

Kings Island is trying to beat this record as part of its Kicks Cancer campaign to raise awareness for Melanoma Know more.

The King Island initiative is part of its Kicks Cancer campaign to raise awareness for Melanoma Know More.

To contribute to the campaign, park visitors can buy a soccer ball through August 24 and kick it into the park fountain for a chance to win a 2015 Honda Fit from Performance Kings Honda.

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