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.

Civil rights attorneys said they hope to exonerate the former chairman of a bribery conviction by obtaining unreleased emails from a federal judge reprimanded for sending racist correspondence. Former Montana U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull sentenced Birdinground (“bird-in-ground”) to three years in prison in 2003. The 79-year-old Crow leader had pleaded guilty to taking kickbacks from a car dealership. When Birdinground sought to retract his plea and go to trial, Cebull rejected the request, a decision upheld on appeal. Cebull resigned last year after an investigation into a racist email he sent involving President Barack Obama. (AP Photo/Billings Gazette, Larry Mayer)
