MASON, Ohio (AP) — A southwestern Ohio amusement park hopes to set a world record for the most heads shaved simultaneously to help raise awareness and money for the fight against cancer.

More than 200 hair stylists from Great Clips salons in Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Cleveland, Lima and Toledo will shave heads Friday at Kings Island amusement park north of Cincinnati.

The Guinness Book of Records shows the current record at 182 heads shaved simultaneously. That was achieved by Cancer Council ACT-Canberra Relay for Life in Canberra, Australia on March 29.

The Kings Island initiative is part of its Kicks Cancer campaign.

Park visitors also can contribute to the campaign through Aug. 24 by buying a soccer ball and kicking it into the park fountain for a chance to win a new car.
